The National Organization of Women (NOW) put the Little Sisters of the Poor on a list of 100 “dirty” companies which decline to provide some forms of birth control for religious reasons, via Townhall:

The National Organization of Women (NOW) has compiled a list of what they’re calling the “Dirty 100” — organizations who have filed suit against the HHS Contraception Mandate. One of the “Dirty 100” organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the Little Sisters of the Poor.

The Little Sisters of the Poor take vows to tend to the needs of the elderly poor. They are opposed to providing contraception to their employees as contraception violates the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Little Sisters of the Poor are not considered to be a “religious employer” and exempt from the mandate as they employ and care for people of all faith backgrounds.
