Will Nuns Be Forced to Provide Contraceptives?

Thursday, May 5, 2016

The Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns dedicated to serving the poor and elderly, is still battling the government mandate to provide contraceptives. Ironically, about one-third of Americans participate in health plans that have been exempted from the mandate. But the Administration refuses to exempt the nuns. Facing roughly $70 million in fines, the Little Sisters of the Poor’s case for religious liberty and healthcare freedom awaits a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
