Obama Admin. Asks Judge To Dismiss Contraception Mandate Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON D.C. (WLNS) - The Obama Administration is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Christian colleges in Iowa and Michigan over a mandate requiring health insurance plans to provide birth control coverage.

The schools argue that the mandate requiring insurance plans to cover birth control coverage violates their religious freedom, since many Christians oppose its use.

However, the Obama Administration says the mandate accommodates religious-based employers by requiring third-party administrators to provide and pay for that coverage.
