President Obama's key Catholic ally to a health plan requiring insurers provide free contraceptive coverage is no longer backing the measure.
The Catholic Health Association says it's now "deeply concerned" about the initiative.
According to a letter from the organization, it's concerned the plan supports abortion drugs and sterilization.
The White House denies its contraceptive mandate covers drugs that cause abortions.
The association now wants the Obama Administration to broaden its exemption on the contraceptive mandate to include different kinds of religiously affiliated institutions.
