Public urged to comment on HHS mandate religious liberty cases

Period of public comment ends Sept. 20

NEW YORK -- The public comment period ends Sept. 20 for those who would like to help solve the impasse over the Affordable Care Act’s unjust contraception and abortion mandate.
 
After hearing oral arguments March 23 in Priests for Life vs. HHS and six other cases against the mandate, the Supreme Court sent the cases back to the lower courts with the admonition that the Obama administration and the petitioners – 37 in all – should sort it out themselves. On July 22, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a notice in the Federal Register asking the public for its ideas.
 
“For everyone who understands how important this case is, this is our opportunity to stand together strongly for religious liberty,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and a named petitioner in Priests for Life vs. HHS. “You can be sure that those who want to advance abortion and contraception at the expense of religious liberty will let their voices be heard. We must not fail to raise ours."
 
Tonight, Monday September 12, Priests for Life will hold a public webcast, from 9 to 10 p.m. ET, to guide people as to how to participate in this process. People may sign up at www.priestsforlife.org/Webcast. 
 
For information on the Supreme Court cases and for detailed guidance on how to participate in this public comment period, go to www.IStandwithPFL.com
 
 
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

I have and will always be pro-life. Abortion should not be a form of birth control!
