Hobby Lobby, a craft store with 525 U.S. locations, has announced
that it will defy a federal mandate to provide health coverage for all employees that includes emergency contraceptive coverage, and will pay a fine of $1.3 million every day.
On Wednesday, Justice Sotomayor denied
the company's request for an emergency injunction to block the portion of the Affordable Care Act that requires employee health-care plans to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after pill and similar emergency contraception pills.
An attorney for Hobby Lobby, whose lawsuit
claims that the mandate violates the religious beliefs of their owners, has stated that Hobby Lobby doesn't intend to offer its employees insurance that would cover the drug while its lawsuit is pending.
