Hobby Lobby delays insurance year, postponing millions in fines

Catholic World News - January 14, 2013

Hobby Lobby, the arts-and-crafts chain that is defying the HHS mandate by refusing to offer insurance coverage for the morning-after pill, has delayed the start of its insurance year by several months, thus postponing the prospect of a daily $1.3-million fine.

“Hobby Lobby discovered a way to shift the plan year for its employee health insurance, thus postponing the effective date of the mandate for several months,” Hobby Lobby’s attorney said in a statement. “Hobby Lobby does not provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs in its healthcare plan. Hobby Lobby will continue to vigorously defend its religious liberty and oppose the mandate and any penalties.”

    Women of good will everywhere should note the providential nature of having a renewed and godly excuse for buying more yarn or scrapbooking materials. See you later.
