Adding Domino’s Pizza to the growing list of private entities fighting the feds over the HHS contraception mandate, the company’s founder filed suit on Friday:
Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a ‘gravely immoral’ practice. He’s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, along with his Domino’s Farms, which runs an office park near Ann Arbor.
And, despite the lies that will soon appear in the media, Mr. Monaghan has no problem with providing health insurance to his employees:
Monaghan offers health insurance that excludes contraception and abortion for employees. The new law requires employers to offer insurance that includes contraception coverage or risk fines. Monaghan says the law violates his constitutional rights, and he’s asking a judge to strike down the mandate.
And, to repeat the obvious for progressives who can’t handle a little critical thinking, he isn’t preventing anyone from acquiring contraceptives. He, like the dozens of other organizations suing the government over this, is merely declining to pay for for it.
To put it in terms that even a progressive can understand, he is like a vegan whom the government has ordered to buy everyone hamburgers. No progressive would do such a thing, yet they can’t see that forcing Monaghan to pay for abortion pills is far worse.
