HHS Mandate Hurts Businesses

The infamous HHS mandate, forcing employers to provide insurance covering sterilization and abortifacient drugs, kicks in on Tuesday. Most of the attention has focused on church-based organizations fighting this mandate, but private businesses are affected too. Badly affected.

Here’s one.

Hercules owners William Newland, Paul Newland, James Newland, and Christine Ketterhagen, and its vice-president, Andrew Newland, are practicing and believing Catholics. They desire to run the company, an HVAC manufacturer, in a manner that reflects their sincerely held religious beliefs, including their belief that God requires respect for the sanctity of human life. Their lawsuit, Newland v. Sebelius, is in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.
