Hobby Lobby Sues Government Over Coverage of Abortion Inducing Drugs

According to a press release by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, Hobby Lobby has filed a lawsuit in US District Court opposing the Health and Human Services “preventive services” mandate, which forces the business to provide, without co-pay, the “morning after pill” and “week after pill” in their health insurance plan, or face fines up to 1.3 million dollars per day. 

David Green, Hobby Lobby CEO and founder has stated, “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”

 

Hobby Lobby is the largest and 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.

 

Founded in an Oklahoma City garage in 1972, the Green family has grown Hobby Lobby from one 300-square-foot retail space into more than 500 stores in 41 states.

 

“It is by God’s grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured,” said Green.  “Therefore we seek to honor God by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles. The conflict for me is that our family is being forced to choose between following the laws of the country that we love or maintaining the religious beliefs that have made our business successful and have supported our family and thousands of our employees and their families.”

 

There are now 27 separate lawsuits challenging the HHS mandate, which is a regulation under the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”).
These HHS challenges were not affected by the Supreme Court’s June 28th ruling on the constitutionality of the “individual mandate.”
