A MESSAGE FROM THE PENNSYLVANIA CATHOLIC CONFERENCE

As many of you know, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Affordable Care Act, continues to demand coverage of sterilization, contraception and abortion-causing drugs as women’s preventative services. Religious ministries of service – such as charities, schools, health care facilities and institutions of higher education – are given, at best, second-class status under the law in the form of a still-murky “accommodation.”

As it stands the HHS mandate ignores our nation’s foundational freedoms of conscience and religion. The Church and its ministries have been told that we can call ourselves Catholic; we just can’t act like we are.

Congress is currently considering legislation that would address this issue and HHS is holding an open comment period about its mandate. Catholics must send a strong clear message to HHS, the White House and to Congress that we will not abandon our religious freedom. Your comments are needed. Even if you submitted comments in the past, you should do so again.
