Obamacare faces another lawsuit over contraception coverage

John Kennedy, a Michigan CEO, says that his Catholic beliefs prevent him from covering contraception and sterilization in his company insurance policy

The Supreme Court upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in June, but that hasn’t stopped several employers from challenging the law’s insurance mandate on religious grounds.

The latest plaintiff to sue the federal government over the law is John Kennedy, president and CEO of Michigan manufacturing companies Autocam and Autocam Medical, who says that his Catholic beliefs prevent him from including coverage of contraception and abortion-inducing drugs in his company’s insurance plan.
