Nuns file challenge on birth control

DENVER (AP) - Colorado nuns who operate nursing homes for the poor have spelled out their

objections to the national health care law's birth control rules in a 74-page appeal to a federal

court in Denver. The Little Sisters of the Poor object to a requirement that they provide

contraceptive coverage in their employee health plan, saying it's contrary to their religious

beliefs. The Department of Health and Human Services says the rules accommodate the concerns

of religious organizations.
