On Monday, a federal judge gave the U.S.Conference of Catholic Bishops and employers in two Southern states temporary relief from a rule that would have made them give workers time off and other accommodations for abortions, Fox News reported:

“Judge David Joseph granted temporary relief on Monday in two consolidated lawsuits – one brought by the attorneys general of Louisiana and Mississippi, and another brought by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic University and two Catholic dioceses.

“The lawsuits challenge rules by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that take effect Tuesday stating abortions are among pregnancy-related conditions covered by the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which took effect last year.”
