Why Little Sisters of the Poor Won’t Sign HHS Form 700

Athletics & Health, Social Sciences

On Supreme Court Case: Why We Can’t “just sign the form” —  Sister Constance Veit, communications director for the Little Sisters of the Poor, offers an explanation.   “Form 700 is neither a simple declaration of conscientious objection, nor an “opt out” regarding the HHS Contraceptive Mandate. Form 700 is a permission slip.  Signing Form 700 would involve us in formal cooperation with wrongdoing, which is never permissible under Catholic doctrine.”  Students can consider this case in terms of conscience, doctrine, two-kingdoms strategies, and other themes.
