Priests for Life files cert petition with U.S. Supreme Court in case against HHS Mandate


Priests for Life



NEW YORK -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today announced that the ministry’s lawsuit against the HHS mandate contained in the Affordable Care Act has been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Our attorneys filed today our ‘cert petition’ with the U.S. Supreme Court. This means we are asking the Court to hear our case, on the merits, challenging the HHS mandate.

“We had to take this step after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled against us in November, and then a few weeks ago denied our petition for an en banc hearing,” explained Fr. Pavone.

“We believe we can win this case at the High Court,” Fr. Pavone continued, “but let it be clear that we also believe in a higher court, and that no matter what happens, we will obey God rather than men.”
