Catholic college would shut down before submitting to Obama abortifacient contraceptive mandate

BELMONT, North Carolina, November 23, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The president of Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina says they would rather close their doors than submit to a mandate by the Obama administration that threatens to force Catholic institutions to cover abortifacient drugs, sterilizations, and contraceptives in their health plans.

“I believe we would go there,” said Dr. William Thierfelder, according to the Gaston Gazette, at a press conference Friday after they launched a lawsuit against the Obama administration. “The point is I don’t think we’re going to have to get there. There’s many steps in between that we can take before we come to that conclusion.”
