More than 30 lawsuits have been filed in federal courts to halt the ObamaCare language that mandates health insurance policies to include free coverage for abortifacient drugs, birth-control and sterilization.
The Thomas More Society has now filed suit on behalf of a Michigan business, Autocam, a world leader in precision manufacturing, that objects to the measure on religious grounds. Attorney Tom Brejcha notes that the Obama administration recently reiterated that it does not intend to yield on the mandate.
“I wish we could do it as kind of a nationwide class action [lawsuit], but we can’t. You have to do it one employer at a time,” he tells OneNewsNow.
“This is a major employer and pretty much carrying the ball for a lot of others who are similarly situated, and we hope that maybe Uncle Sam will get the message if we can get some relief from the federal district court in the Western District of Michigan.”
Some federal courts have dismissed the lawsuits, saying it is not yet time for them to be heard. But that does not bother Brejcha.
