Bishop: No yield on birth control
BALTIMORE -- A top Roman Catholic bishop says the church will never comply with the Obama administration mandate to provide birth control coverage in health insurance.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan said the bishops are open to talking with federal officials. But Dolan said bishops will continue to challenge the requirement in legislatures and in court.
Dolan spoke Tuesday in Baltimore at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Houses of worship are exempt from the birth control rule, but religiously affiliated hospitals and nonprofits are not. Dozens of Catholic dioceses and charities are suing over the mandate.
The Obama administration has offered an accommodation, but many religious leaders say that so far, it isn't workable.
