Mark Rienzi, a lawyer with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which represents the nuns, said on Friday that “government officials and judges” are telling faith-based groups that their beliefs are wrong.

“The federal government doesn’t need the Little Sisters or any other ministry to help it distribute abortion-inducing drugs and other contraceptives,” Rienzi said in a statement.
