Christian Hobby Lobby Stores Sue ObamaCare

It’s reported that the Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores chain has filed a federal lawsuit over a mandate in the health reform law that requires employers to provide coverage for the morning-after pill.

Hobby Lobby Inc., a privately held retail chain with more than 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states, has filed suit against the Obama administration over the birth control mandate in the federal Affordable Care Act.

The lawsuit says the mandate forces the Christian-owned-and-operated business to provide, without co-pay, the “morning after pill” and “week after pill” in their employee group health insurance plan, or face crippling fines of more than a million dollars per day starting in January.

Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green says “By being required to make a choice between sacrificing our faith or paying millions of dollars in fines, we essentially must choose which poison pill to swallow…We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”

Hobby Lobby is the largest and to date the only non-Catholic-owned business to file a lawsuit against the HHS mandate, focusing sharp criticism on the administration’s regulation that forces all companies, regardless of religious conviction, to cover abortion-inducing drugs.
