90+ ND Faculty and Staff Deem HHS Accommodation Unacceptable


More than ninety faculty and staff members from the University of Notre Dame have joined "over 300  leading scholars, university presidents and other academic administrators, activists, and religious leaders from a multitude of faiths... in a statement rejecting the HHS mandate requiring employers to provide, directly or indirectly, insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilizations, and contraceptives, and also rejecting President Obama’s so-called “accommodation” of religious liberty as a mere “accounting trick” that changes nothing of moral substance."
