Only days after Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, announced that it was terminating its student health insurance program, officials at Ave Maria University in Ave Maria, Florida, are voicing moral and financial concerns about their own student health program in light of ObamaCare's stringent guidelines. President Obama’s landmark healthcare overhaul has spurred a controversy not just for its contraception mandate, but also for the swelling economic costs accompanying its implementation.
Franciscan University, a Catholic school in Steubensville, Ohio, announced Tuesday it will be terminating its student health insurance program, thanks to ObamaCare’s contraception mandate and new costs stemming from other provisions of the healthcare law. The university has so far refrained from offering contraceptive products and services with its student health program, and said it refuses to participate in a plan that “requires us to violate the consistent teachings of the Catholic Church on the sacredness of human life.”
