Obama Administration Tells SCOTUS to Force Catholic Nuns to Pay for Contraception

It’s an Obama world.
The Obama administration told the Supreme Court to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception.

Earlier this week Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor blocked the Obama administration from forcing the Little Sisters of the Poor to provide free contraceptive coverage to employees.

The Little Sisters of the Poor serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world. The sisters previously said the contraception mandate in ObamaCare will make it impossible for them to continue their work in the United States.


Life News reported:

The Obama administration has filed legal papers appealing a decision by the Supreme Court to protect a group of Catholic nuns from being forced to obey the controversial birth control mandate.

As LifeNews reported this week, in a huge 11th-hour victory for pro-life advocates, the Supreme Court issued an order late Tuesday night stopping the Obama administration from forcing a group of Catholic nuns to obey the HHS mandate that compels them to pay for abortion-causing drugs and birth control.

The group Little Sisters of the Poor received a temporary injunction from the Supreme Court protecting them from the controversial HHS contraceptive mandate.  The injunction means that the Little Sisters will not be forced to sign and deliver forms authorizing and directing others to provide contraceptives, sterilizations and drugs and devices that cause abortions.
