(KCEN) -- Craft store giant Hobby Lobby is now suing the federal government over the Affordable Care Act mandate.
Chain founder David Green says his Christian-based company should not have to pay for emergency contraceptives like the morning-after pill.
But the federal health care law requires businesses to provide all approved contraceptives.
Hobby Lobby once provided the morning after pills as part of its insurance plan. The company's attorney said the pills were added to the coverage without the Green's knowledge.
Kyle Duncan of the General Council for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty said, "The Green family does not oppose contraceptives per se so contraception is offered in their plans it doesn't include contraceptives that can cause early abortions."
Hobby Lobby is asking a federal judge to issue an injunction against the health care law, which would impact the store beginning in January.
This is one of 27 similar lawsuits filed against the contraception mandate.
