A small Catholic university in Ohio is no longer offering health insurance coverage to students. It says the reason is the President's healthcare reform act.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

Franciscian University of Steubenville, Ohio is ending student health insurance rather than be compelled to offer contraception.

(Hernon) "It goes against our deeply held moral andĀ religiousĀ beliefs."

Franciscian Vice President Michael Hernon also says the cost of insurance is on track to double next year, and triple after that.

(Hernon) "The Affordable Healthcare Act is simply unaffordable for our students."

While Franciscan is dropping student coverage, it will still cover its employees and still operate a health clinic on campus.
