title : Nuns Beg Supreme Court to Not Make Them 'Pick Between Faith And The Poor' via Contraceptive Mandate
summary : A group of Catholic nuns who care for the elderly poor, the Little Sisters of the Poor, urged the Supreme Court on Monday to protect them from $70 million in government fines for refusing to violate their Catholic faith. Religious sisters should not be forced to choose between caring for the poor and obeying their conscience, the nuns stated in a legal brief, adding that this choice is what the government is demanding of them through the federal contraception mandate.
