Catholic hospitals are dismayed President Barack Obama's health care legislation may force them to cover birth control free of charge to their employees. "I call this the parish housekeeper exemption — that's about all it covers," Sister Carol said. "What we are trying to do is make workable the conscience protection the administration says it is willing to give," she said. (AP Photo/The Catholic Health Association of the United States, File)
