Nuns Continue to Fight for Religious Liberty In Battle Over Obamacare’s Birth Control Mandate


Another group of nuns is heading to court to fight for their religious liberty in a battle over the birth control mandate in Obamacare.

The nuns run the Eternal Word Television Network, EWTN. Their case goes before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday.

They object to the Health and Human Services contraception mandate in Obamacare, which would force them to provide health insurance for drugs that may cause abortions.

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is representing the nuns in the case.

Becket Senior Counsel Daniel Blomberg recently pointed out to CBN News the Supreme Court has already ruled against the Obama administration on the mandate.

“They lost three times at the U.S. Supreme Court regarding this issue of the abortifacient mandate where they were trying to force ministries and family-run faith-based businesses to provide abortion and contraceptive drugs in their health insurance policies,” Blomberg said.

One of those cases involved a temporary injunction in favor of another group of nuns.

“They lost in the Little Sisters of the Poor case at the beginning of the year last year, they lost in the Hobby Lobby case, and they lost again in the Wheaton College case,” he continued.

The Little Sisters of the Poor, like EWTN, are still seeking a final verdict.

If they don’t win their case, both groups of nuns face millions of dollars in IRS fines.
