Wyoming Catholic groups get healthcare injunction

CHEYENNE, WYO. — Roman Catholic organizations in Wyoming secured a court order Monday blocking, at least for now, a provision of the federal Affordable Care Act requiring them to take steps to allow hundreds of employees to secure contraception and abortion services.

The organizations had asked the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver to review a Wyoming judge’s decision last month that they must comply with the law or face fines while a larger legal challenge to the federal health law is pending.

Two judges with the appellate court issued an injunction Monday, pending a possible later hearing on the lower court’s ruling.


Maybe, just maybe the Domino effect will bring the rest of the house of cards down. Maybe. Keep those Rosaries coming. We aren’t out of the woods yet, not by a long shot.
