Illinois Catholic couple taking on Obama over contraception mandate
(MCT) — An Oak Brook health care company and its Roman Catholic owners who don't want to include birth control in their employees' benefits still have no choice, despite exceptions to the contraception mandate proposed by the Obama administration this month.
The proposed rule, which attempted to address complaints that the mandate violates First Amendment rights, does not shield for-profit businesses with more than 50 employees. Those employers must provide health benefits, including contraception and some sterilization procedures, even if they object on religious grounds.
