Rev. Michael Orsi of the Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida, says about the HHS mandate, “For us, that is a moral aberration. It is something that we cannot do. And why is it being pushed on us? Because if we do not obey, then our Catholic colleges, and our hospitals, and our Catholic outreach institutions will be fined and eventually closed down.”
