U.S. senators to Obama administration: Contraception mandate threatens faith-based health care

Sen. Mike Johanns

Eighteen U.S. senators, led by Senators Mike Johanns and Orrin Hatch, have sent a letter to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius regarding the Obama administration's new contraception mandate. The senators told Ms. Sebelius that the mandate "threatens the ability of many religious employers to continue to offer health coverage to their employees consistent with their beliefs. Moreover, it jeopardizes essential constitutional rights to religious liberty and personal conscience by forcing employees to subsidize coverage that violates their faith."
