Rallies held across the nation took aim at the government's HHS mandate that will require most employers to cover contraception and sterilization procedures in their health plans.

This Catholic News Agency story reports that a federal judge in Michigan has granted the second temporary injunction against the federal contraception mandate to plaintiffs who argue that it violates their right to freely practise their religion in business decisions.

"This is not only a victory for our clients, but for religious freedom," said Erin Mersino, lead counsel on the case for the Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Weingartz Supply Company and its president Daniel Weingartz.

Joining in the lawsuit was Legatus, a non-profit organization of Catholic business owners and CEOs seeking to live out their faith in their professional and personal lives.
