Trinity International University Comments on HHS Contraceptives Mandate

 

In early February, 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services requested comments on its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that offered draft and amended regulations concerning mandated coverage in health plans of controversial preventive health services for churches and faith-based organizations who object to including some or all of the coverage. The comments from TIU on the proposed rulemaking argue that the proposed “accommodation” for faith-based organizations such as TIU does not resolve the religious freedom concerns originally created by the mandated coverage.

The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, the bioethics center at Trinity International University, flagged the ethical concerns, provided background research, briefed executive leadership of the University, and provided guidance to the comments submitted by our parent institution.
