“Because the stakes are so high, we will not cease from our effort to assure that healthcare for all does not mean freedom for few,” New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, president of the bishops’ conference, said in a statement.

Under the federal health care overhaul, the administration has pressed to require most employers to provide access to free contraceptive coverage.
