  • Coats Statement on Federal Court Ruling Requiring Notre Dame to Follow Contraception Mandate

    May 21, 2015 No comments

    WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today made the following statement regarding a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit requiring the University of Notre Dame to comply with the Obama Administration’s rule under the Affordable Care Act mandating that church-affiliated organizations, charities, hospitals and educational institutions facilitate access to contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs despite moral objections:

    “Requiring faith-based institutions to betray the fundamental tenants of their beliefs is unconstitutional and contrary to the cherished American tradition of religious liberty. Whether it is Notre Dame or many other faith-based institutions of higher learning, the thread of faith that runs through these schools is essential to their religious beliefs and successful administration of a faith in learning education. This same thread of faith is vital to food banks, homeless shelters and many important organizations addressing social needs in Indiana and across the country. 

    “Under our Constitution, all people of all faiths have the right to exercise their faith within the bounds of our justice system, even if their beliefs seem to some as misguided, flawed or flat out wrong. Faith-based institutions should not have to facilitate insurance coverage for products that are counter to their religious or moral beliefs.”
