PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Bishop David Zubik joined KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek to talk about how “Obamacare” contradicts the teachings of the Catholic faith and how an impending federal rule requiring contraception and sterilization coverage in all health insurance will cause Catholic agencies to drop all health insurances.

The Bishop told Mike that this could cause Catholic agencies to close.

Executive Director of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Susan Rauscher said “It poses for us the dilemma of providing health insurance coverage for our employees that include services that are counter to our teaching, or not providing health benefits at all.”
