The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, joining dozens of others filed against the birth control mandate in President Obama's health care overhaul.
Catholics and evangelicals especially object to the mandate, saying it forces them to compromise their religious beliefs by offering insurance that covers abortion drugs and birth control.
Two Baptist universities in Texas also filed suits against the mandate earlier this week.
Houston Baptist University and East Texas Baptist University say they face fines of more than $10 million a year if they don't comply with the new requirements.
To date, 33 federal lawsuits challenging the birth control mandate have been filed.
