Over one hundred lawsuits have been filed around the country
opposing the HHS mandate. Many
of these lawsuits were filed by Catholic dioceses, Catholic schools and
universities, Catholic health systems, and Catholic charitable organizations
that have been forced to facilitate and/or fund drugs and devices that violate their
religious and moral convictions. Other lawsuits have
been filed by plaintiffs—both Catholic and non-Catholic—who also oppose the HHS
mandate. On June 30, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in favor of evangelical-owned Hobby Lobby and other family owned businesses and ruled that they do not have to comply with the HHS mandate in its current form.
