Secular businessman taking on ObamaCare

Written By: Charlie Butts  |  Posted: Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

            A Missouri businessman has filed a first-of-a-kind lawsuit against ObamaCare's requirement that he provide for his employees free insurance coverage of contraceptives, sterilizations, and the "morning-after" pill.

            Frank Manion of the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) is representing Frank O'Brien of O'Brien Industrial Holdings in St. Louis, which operates a number of businesses with products exported to more than 40 countries. As a Catholic, O'Brien is taking on the Department of Health and Human Services, asking the court to issue a permanent injunction prohibiting the HHS from requiring those who have religious objections to abide by the mandate.
            "This is all about protecting religious liberty. It's not about preventing anybody's access to anything that they're legally entitled to get," Manion asserts. "Mr. O'Brien is not trying to stand in the way of anybody getting contraception, sterilization, or anything else; he's simply saying, I don't want to be part of it. Don't make me pay for it and under the Constitution, you can't make me pay for it."
