Notre Dame Joining the Fray for Religious Liberty

A friend tells me:
Notre Dame is joining the fray against the HHS mandate. As you know, other Catholic (and protestant) universities have already sued the government. What makes this different is that Notre Dame is a self-insuring employer, meaning that the Obama Administration's "accommodation," which shifts the burden of paying for abortifacient drugs from the religious employer to the insurance company, doesn't apply to Notre Dame. Thus, the accommodation does nothing for Notre Dame, making it a great plaintiff to keep pressure on the government. A final note, Notre Dame is represented by a great law firm, Jones Day, so they should be in very good hands.

Here's the complaint (long but good).


  1. Thank you very much for sharing this news.

  2. Obamacare is rotten to the core. It doesn't surprise me that someone who is as pro-abortion as Obama only understands life through the sexual revolution insists on sexual mandates. Obamacare reflects the rotteness of our cultural rot.
