EWTN Catholic Q&A
HHS MANDATE
Question from kathleen on 01-24-2013:

Do you know if Ascension Health Network has filed suit against the HHS Mandate? Several Catholic Hospitals have or are in the process of merging with Ascenso Health Network. Is Ascenson Health Network in line with all the teachings of the Catholic Church?

Thank you for what you are doing to defend life at all its stages and for your fidelity to the holy Catholic Church.

Ascension Health Network is not suing the Obama Administration over the Mandate. In fact one article about them indicates their willingness to support abortion in some cases: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/politics/magazine/100960/catholic-church-hospital- health-care-contraception#
