Federal Lawsuit Update
Federal District Judge Arthur Schwab has granted a preliminary injunction against implementation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) mandate.
If the injunction had not been granted, by January 1, 2014 the Church and Church-related entities in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, including Catholic Charities, under the threat of punitive fines, would have faced a government mandate to provide access to abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization services, contraceptives and related counseling.
