“Reproductive Rights Group Suing HHS Over Conscience Division Information,” POLITICO Pulse
October 15, 2019
FIRST IN PULSE: Reproductive rights group suing HHS over conscience division information. The Center for Reproductive Rights is planning to file suit today after the organization said it's been stonewalled on a pair of Freedom of Information Act requests related to the HHS civil rights office.
One FOIA request centers on the resources devoted to the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, which HHS has established to protect providers' religious liberty; a second FOIA request focuses on what the civil rights office is doing with its millions of dollars collected through HIPAA enforcement.
