News Release: Michigan Catholic Conference Comments on Revised HHS Mandate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Lansing, Mich.) — Michigan Catholic Conference released the following statement today after the Trump administration announced broad exemptions for religious organizations opposed to the insurance coverage of morally objectionable drugs and devices mandated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

“Today’s new regulations concerning the HHS Mandate should provide greater assistance to those religious entities that have been forced to defend their First Amendment rights in federal court. Since its creation the mandate has represented a divisive and unnecessary attempt on the part of the government to force its ideology into the lives of religious institutions, something wholly unprecedented in American history. Michigan Catholic Conference now looks forward to resolving its ongoing legal dispute over the HHS Mandate and settling its case against the federal government.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
