Little Sisters Win BIG at the Supreme Court Against the HHS Mandate!

Becket Fund / Little Sisters of the Poor

The Little Sisters of the Poor just secured a big win at the U.S. Supreme Court in their case against the HHS mandate.

In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court vacated the lower court ruling that had required the Little Sisters to facilitate access to contraceptives (including some that are suspected of being abortifacient) and that had denied that the mandate substantially burdened their religion. Next, the court recommended a compromise that the Little Sisters of the Poor had already agreed to, but that the Obama administration had previously been unwilling to accept.

While the case is not completely over – a lower court will have to rule on it again – the Supreme Court’s ruling seems to all but settle the case in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Here’s a response from Sr. Constance Veit, director of vocations for the Little Sisters of the Poor:
