SF Religious Leader Condemns New Mandate

SF Religious Leader Condemns New Mandate
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A Sioux Falls religious leader has condemned a new mandate from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Bishop Paul Swain says the regulation effectively requires all institutions that provide health insurance to their employees to provide coverage for artificial contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs. The bishop says the mandate directly contradicts the basics of Catholicism.

Bishops all across the country are responding the same way because we feel as if our freedom of religion, our ability to live out the church teachings are being compromised by this resolution,” Swain said.

The mandate does give institutions one year to comply, but Swain believes that just gives him a year to decide how to violate your conscience. He's urging those who disagree with the regulation to write their representatives because religious-based exceptions have been made for other laws.
