The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in a case that pitts nuns from The Little Sisters of the Poor against Obamacare's birth control coverage mandate.

The Catholic charity was founded nearly 180 years ago to "offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ."


"The government cannot force believers to choose between following their faith and following the law," said Fr. Frank Pavone, a Roman Catholic priest and the national director of the group Priests for Life. The group is also a plaintiff in the case before the Supreme Court.

"This accommodation is not an 'opt-out.' Rather, it is a hijacking of the mechanism of our insurance plans to further the immoral goal of expanding access to abortion-inducing drugs and other objectionable services," Pavone continued.
