NY Archdiocese: Ruling Against Contraception Mandate Gives All ‘Religious Freedom’
The Archdiocese of New York applauded a judge’s decision Monday that so-called non-exempt religious groups are not bound by the Affordable Care Act’s requirement to provide, in their health care insurance plans, coverage for contraceptives and other birth control options.
In a statement, Archdiocese spokesman Joseph Zwilling called Brooklyn Federal Court Judge Brian Cogan’s ruling a “thoughtful decision” and that non-exempt Catholic health and educational organizations “have religious freedom rights.”
Cogan barred the government from enforcing the mandate against Catholic Health Care System, Catholic Health Services of Long Island, Cardinal Spellman High School and Monsignor Farrell High School.
Hey! This doesn’t mean that the battle for religious freedom is over. But let us savor the few good days we get!
