WHAT WON’T THEY FIGHT FOR?

There is worrisome evidence that Notre Dame may now comply with the Obama abortifacient mandate.

NOTRE DAME, IN – In this bulletin, we report that we have learned Notre Dame may abandon its legal attack on the Obama administration’s abortifacient/contraception/sterilization mandate (“abortifacient mandate”) and instead comply. We have urged it to renew its attack. We tell also of honors accorded to the Irish Rover and to Father Timothy Scully and the ACE program and of the judicial vindication of counsel for the ND88.

Last year, as we reported, Notre Dame joined many other religious non-profits in dozens of lawsuits to set aside the Obama administration’s abortifacient mandate as an unlawful infringement of religious liberty. That litigation is still in its early stages. Nevertheless, there is worrisome evidence that Notre Dame may now drop its claim and comply with the mandate.
