Catholics challenge Affordable Care Act's birth control rule in Wyoming

Roman Catholic organizations in Wyoming told a federal judge Wednesday that they don’t want to have anything to do with helping their employees access health insurance that includes contraception and abortion services.

Under the federal Affordable Care Act, the Cheyenne diocese and other religious groups, including Catholic schools in the state, don’t have to provide contraception and abortion services for their more than 200 nonministerial employees.

But that’s only if they get a religious certification that gives those same employees access to health insurance through another provider with those same options.

May God grant them victory.
