DeWine joins Attorneys General in Challenging Contraception Mandate

DeWine, Twelve State Attorneys General Challenge Mandate Requiring Religious Organizations to Offer Insurance Coverage for Contraception Services for Their Employees

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today joined with 11 fellow attorneys general in sending a letter to Secretaries Sebelius, Geithner and Solis regarding the Obama administration mandate to require religious employers that provide health insurance coverage for employees to cover contraception and related services.

“Religious organizations should not be forced by the federal government to provide services that violate their spiritual and moral beliefs,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.  “This policy is in direct conflict with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which guarantees the freedoms of religion, speech and association.”
