A federal judge has ruled that the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend does not have to provide employees with medical insurance that pays for birth control.
The diocese sued the federal government over the contraceptioncoverage mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
That provision of the health care law takes effect Wednesday.
