Statement of Cardinal Egan Regarding Health-Care Mandate

February 2, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 2, 2012

 
STATEMENT OF CARDINAL EGAN REGARDING HEALTH-CARE MANDATE

The decision of the Administration in Washington, D.C., to force religious institutions to provide sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs to their staffs and employees is nothing short of a national disgrace.  To treat the consciences of millions of American citizens as a matter of no consequence is an attack on all the best in the history and traditions of our beloved country.  The decision needs to be reversed immediately and definitively. 


Edward Cardinal Egan
Archbishop-emeritus of New York
