Arts and crafts megachain Hobby Lobby is filing a lawsuit against a mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- the one that requires it to cover its employees’ purchase of morning-after pill.

And now, according to Fox News, Hobby Lobby is facing “some backlash” for its stance.
 

The the article only quoted one Flickr user who says she’s boycotting Hobby Lobby... and another quote from a now-defunct Facebook page of Hobby Lobby boycotters.

Hobby Lobby’s owner David Green is a devout Christian, and the lawsuit says the mandate would force the company to violate its faith by making it buy pills it believes to cause abortion.

 

KVVU explains what’s at stake for Hobby Lobby if it loses the lawsuit and still insists on not covering the week-after and morning-after pills.
 

“Starting January 1, the company could be fined up to $1.3 million for every day it does not provide its employees this coverage.”
 

But a report by the New York Times from back in June suggests arguments of how morning-after pills are abortive instead of contraceptive could be moot.
 

“Studies have not established that emergency contraceptive pills prevent fertilized eggs from implanting in the womb, leading scientists say. Rather, the pills delay ovulation, the release of eggs from ovaries that occurs before eggs are fertilized, and some pills also thicken cervical mucus so sperm have trouble swimming.”
 

Hobby Lobby says it would still cover preventive forms of birth control pills.
