'Priests for Life' to Defy Birth Control Mandate

Ad Feedback

The director of a national Catholic organization said his group will not obey a federal mandate requiring religious groups to provide contraception coverage to employees.

Frank Pavone, with Priests for Life, said that when dealing with an unjust law, "Civil disobedience is obedience to God."

Priests for Life and other Christian groups are suing to do away with the mandate. Pavone said if the suit is not successful some groups might shut down.

He said that religious groups lose their credibility when they go against their beliefs.
