Campaign for Religious Liberty

On October 13th, 2017 the departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury of the United States Government, entered into an historic settlement agreement with 74 religious organizations, including the Archdiocese of St. Louis and Catholic Charities of St. Louis. In a series of lawsuits, the religious organizations challenged Department of Health and Human Services regulations that would have required these entities to provide employee health plans that included contraceptives, abortifacients, and sterilization procedures, in violation of their religious beliefs.

The historic settlement in effect grants a permanent injunction prohibiting these regulations or any similar future regulations from being enforced against the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Catholic Charities, and the other religious organizations.
