The National Catholic Bioethics Center Comments on New HHS Proposed Rules

October 22, 2014

The National Catholic Bioethics Center submitted comment on the Proposed Rules on coverage of certain preventive services under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), known as the “Contraceptive Mandate.” Specifically the Proposed Rules purport to afford an “accommodation” to specific closely-held for-profit companies for compliance with the Contraceptive Mandate, in light of the U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. (“Hobby Lobby”) and Wheaton College v. Burwell.  However, what the federal government is proposing is clearly more restrictive of religious freedom than provided for by the decision of the Supreme Court.
