On August 1, the federal contraception mandate went into effect. A small number of religious employers are exempt, and some others have until August 1 of next year to figure out ways to comply with the measure.
The pro-life organization Priests For Life is not protected by either exemption.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests For Life, has been a vocal opponent of the government’s policy. Yesterday, he took a defiant stand against the rule, saying that Priests For Life would disobey the mandate.
Our Liz Faublas spoke with Father Frank Pavone.
