The Obama administration, in a major surprise, on Thursday, launched a nationwide plea for advice — technical, practical, legal and even religious — on ways to settle the bitter controversy over the Affordable Care Act’s birth-control mandate. This appeared to be a sign that private talks with religious groups over the issue have not reached a solution. In each of the federal appeals courts where single cases or groups of cases were returned by the Supreme Court in mid-May, in hopes of a bringing about a compromise, administration lawyers on Thursday filed documents spelling out their plan to reach well beyond the groups involved in the cases, soliciting answers from anybody who is interested to a series of questions on possible ways to avoid an impasse. On Friday, the government followed up with a lengthy document published in the forum it uses for formal actions and announcements, the Federal Register. The five-page document listed the questions and inviting comments from what the government described as “a wide variety of stakeholders.” Replies are due by September 20 — about two months from now.
