ObamaCare could mean heavy fines for EWTN

EWTN could be facing $35,000 per day fine for not complying with the ObamaCare HHS
Contraception Mandate

As part of the ObamaCare HHS health program most employers in the USA must provide and fund contraceptives, sterilization and chemically abortive drugs to their employees. As a Catholic organisation EWTN have refused to comply therefore they will be fined for every employee they have on a daily bases. In EWTN’s case that will come to about $35,000 per day fine totalling around $12,000,000 a year – a major part of EWTN’s budget.

In October 2013, EWTN filed a lawsuit against the mandate and on June 17, U.S. District Court Judge Callie V.S. Granade of Mobile, Ala., ruled against EWTN, prompting an appeal to the 11th Circuit
Court of Appeals.

CitizenGo are organizing a petition they say

“We ask you to sign this petition to tell Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell to respect religious liberty, exempt EWTN and other non-profit religious organizations from this unjust mandate. “

  1. If EWTN’s employees are good Catholics as we all should be, then surely it doesn’t matter if they are given contraceptives or not for they will just throw them in the bin.
