Catholic Nonprofits Sue over Contraceptive Mandate

Some Catholic nonprofit organizations in Nashville are asking a federal judge to prevent them from having to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees as mandated in the Affordable Care Act, the Tennessean reports. Villa Maria Manor, Mary Queen of Angels and the Saint Mary Villa Child Development Center are three of the plaintiffs in particular who are seeking a safe harbor period during which the mandate would not be enforced for some religious nonprofits while officials revise it to try to accommodate their concerns.
