Comment on Supreme Court decision on healthcare act by Catholic theologian Dr. Nancy Dallavalle, chair of Department of Religious Studies at Fairfield University

Image: Nancy Dallavalle"Today's Supreme Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act is good news for Catholics, who care for the common good as a religious value. As a Catholic, I look to the Obama administration, as it considers the parameters of the religious exemption, to address the reasonable concerns of Catholic institutions in a way that will seal this important victory for broadened access to health care for all Americans."
