On New Year's Eve, Professor Mark Rienzi and his colleagues at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty won a nationwide injunction against a federal regulation that would force healthcare providers to provide abortions and sex change procedures. The injunction was issued just hours before key parts of the regulation were to take effect. Professor Rienzi represented a network of Catholic hospitals run by the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, along with the Christian Medical & Dental Association.
