Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 12-29-2012 – by James – Hobby lobby, the Christian owned business that is standing strong against the Obama abortion inducing drug mandate has said it will not comply with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor ordering them to provide abortion inducing drugs to their employees.
After a federal court denied a request to temporarily stop enforcement of the abortion pill mandate against the Christian-operated business Hobby Lobby, it took its HHS mandate lawsuit to the Supreme Court. Sotomayor denied its request to block the mandate and the millions of dollars in fines it will be subjected to starting January 1 for not complying.
Now, an attorney for Hobby Lobby says it will defy the mandate and potentially risk potential fines of up to $1.3 million per day.
“The company will continue to provide health insurance to all qualified employees,” Kyle Duncan, an attorney for the pro-life legal group Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, representing Hobby Lobby said. “To remain true to their faith, it is not their intention, as a company, to pay for abortion-inducing drugs.”
Duncan said the family that runs Hobby Lobby is upset the appeals court did not support its case against the HHS mandate, which it says would force the Christian-owned-and-operated company to provide the “morning-after pill” and “week-after pill” in its health insurance plan, or face crippling fines up to $1.3 million per day.
“It is by God’s grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured,” said David Green, founder and CEO. “Therefore we seek to honor God by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles.”
The liberal hate and attacks will intensify against Hobby Lobby in the coming weeks.
Please consider writing a short note to Hobby Lobby thanking them for defending freedom, life, and the Christian faith.
