CNA launches new page with latest HHS mandate news

.- Catholic News Agency has launched a new section to give readers better access to the latest coverage of the debate over the Health and Human Services contraception mandate.

“We hope this page is a service to the Church and everyone interested in this crucial issue of religious liberty,” said editor-in-chief David Scott on Feb. 17.

“CNA's coverage has been outstanding and this new page brings it all together in one place.”

The new section features stories from across the nation and exclusive commentary on the Catholic response to the controversial mandate.

On Jan. 20, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that the Obama administration would not expand a religious exemption for employers who object to its “preventative services” mandate which would force religious organizations to pay for contraception, abortifacients and sterilization as part of health insurance.

After a storm of opposition from religious leaders, President Obama offered a “compromise” on Feb. 10 to those who morally oppose contraception and said that insurance companies, not employers would have to pay for “preventative services.”

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has opposed the accommodation because it would still force “religious people and groups to violate their most deeply held convictions.”
