The Christian Brothers Trust is a last wall of defense for Catholic Organizations Fighting OBAMA CARE!
The Cardinal Newman Society and many Catholic organizations are represented in a class action lawsuit filed by the Christian Brothers Employee Benefits Trust and the Little Sisters of the Poor.
The Trust's health insurance plan – rooted in Catholic principles – is for us and other Catholic groups a last wall of defense against federal and state violations of religious freedom. With its "HHS mandate," the Obama administration threatens to take away our right to morally appropriate health insurance, but this lawsuit now stands in the way.
The suit underscores the stark choice presented by the Obama administration: either abandon the faith or comply. Think of the impact on Catholics across the country, if the Newman Society and other Catholic apostolates are crippled by financial penalties. We've already done so much to support religious freedom we're not backing down now.
The problem the Little Sisters now face is the HHS mandate (a part of the Affordable Care Act), which requires that employers provide as part of the health insurance for employees coverage for contraception, including methods of contraception that induce abortions. The failure to provide such coverage will result in crushing fines. For the Little Sisters, there really can be no middle ground on this issue.
“Like all the Little Sisters, I have vowed to God and the Roman Catholic Church that I will treat all life as valuable, and I have dedicated my life to that work,” explains Sister Loraine Marie, a superior in the United States. “We cannot violate our vows by participating in the government’s program to provide access to abortion-inducing drugs” for lay employees.
