Another Christian College Wins Injunction Over Birth Control Mandate

Another Christian university has won an injunction against the Obama administration’s birth control mandate and its ever-changing exemptions for it.

Ave Maria School of Law, a Catholic law school, first sued the Department of Health and Human Services in 2013 for its “religious accommodation” for religious non-profits who argue Obamacare’s wide mandate that employers must provide 20 kinds of birth control violates their religious beliefs.

Now they won’t be required to comply with the mandate or the Obama administration’s current exemption for religious nonprofits until pending lawsuits against the exemption are ultimately decided, according to a United States District Court in Florida. The school was facing millions in fines that would have taken effect this weekend without the injunction.
