St. Louis Review - St. Louis Business Owner Wins Early Victory in HHS Mandate Suit

By Jennifer Brinker, StLouisReview

A federal appeals court has granted a preliminary injunction that would temporarily stop the HHS mandate from being implemented against a St. Louis Catholic business owner. . . .

In March, the American Center for Law and Justice filed suit on behalf of Frank O'Brien and his company against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The suit challenged the requirement that employers purchase health insurance plans for their employees that include coverage for contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs. O'Brien is a member of St. Gerard Majella Parish in Kirkwood. . . .

Francis Manion, senior counsel for the ACLJ, called the decision "a significant victory."

"The order sends a message that the religious beliefs of employers must be respected by the government," said Manion. "We have argued from the beginning that employers like Frank O'Brien must be able to operate their business in a manner consistent with their moral values, not the values of the government. We look forward to this case moving forward and securing the constitutional rights of our client.". . .
