03.08.13 | Sarah Harnisch

Yet another company has filed a lawsuit against President Obama's HHS mandate, that forces companies to offer abortive care to employees. This time, it's a mortgage company called Cherry Creek Mortgage that employs 730 people and operates in 27 states. The owners are evangelical Christians who object to being forced to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs. They said in their brief that "the first amendment has always protected the God-given freedom of all Americans to live and engage in business according to their faith." The suit joins an ever-growing number of legal challenges to the mandate. The Obama Administration is loosing nationwide; only 5 of 17 rulings have been in favor of the policy.
