IRONDALE, Ala. — The EWTN Global Catholic Network has announced that it will appeal a June 17 ruling that would require it to facilitate products and procedures that go against Church teaching.
“We have no other option but to continue our legal challenge of the mandate,” said Michael Warsaw, chairman and CEO of EWTN. “We are making an immediate appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.”
U.S. district court Judge Callie Granade of Mobile, Ala., ruled against EWTN in its challenge to a federal regulation that the network says requires it to violate its Catholic faith.
“We are extremely disappointed with the decision reached by the court in this case,” Warsaw said.
