Hobby Lobby, a craft store chain, announced on Friday that it will ignore the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court and refuse to provide free birth control access to its employees via their health insurance per Obamacare.
Hobby Lobby sued the federal government over the contraception mandate, earlier this year, claiming the company’s owners, the Green family, had religious objections, reports NewsOK.com.
The Green family believes that the morning after pill, also known as Plan B, is an "abortion-inducing" drug.
The U.S. Supreme Court refused to allow an injunction and said that Hobby Lobby must allow its employees to have access to birth control while the company pursues more litigation.
However, Hobby Lobby plans to ignore the court's order and will face fines of up to $1.3 million a day, beginning on Tuesday.
Kyle Duncan, of The Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty, which is representing Hobby Lobby, said: “They’re not going to comply with the mandate. They’re not going to offer coverage for abortion-inducing drugs in the insurance plan."
