Illinois bishops issue letters to parishioners on HHS rule

Bishops across the nation have written letters to parishioners on the federal Department of Health and Human Services regulation mandating the coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraceptives.

This unfair mandate violates conscience rights and completely disregards religious protections under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Our Illinois bishops, including Cardinal George of Chicago, have issued letters to parishes throughout their dioceses to be read at Mass or inserted into bulletins. Read the bishops' letters by clicking here.
