President Garvey: 'Heartened' by Court's Announcement

John Garvey, president of The Catholic University of America, said that he is "heartened" by the U.S. Supreme Court's announcement Nov. 6 that it will take up all seven pending cases challenging the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) mandate to cover abortifacients, contraception, and sterilization.

"We're encouraged by the court's decision to take up these cases," said Garvey. "As the legal process continues, we look forward to a definitive conclusion and a just outcome."

The cases include dozens of religious schools and universities, including Catholic University, as well as charities such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, who run nursing homes across the country for the elderly poor.
