From the  Philadelphia Inquirer :

A Mennonite-owned cabinetmaker has filed a federal suit charging that the Affordable Care Act’s mandate on contraception coverage violates its constitutional rights.

Conestoga Wood Specialties, citing the principles of religious freedom on which William Penn founded Pennsylvania, says in its suit, filed in U.S. District Court, that to accord to its Mennonite beliefs, it would be “sinful and immoral for the company to participate in, pay for, facilitate or otherwise support any contraception” that would have the effect of an abortion.


Founded in 1964, the privately held company has factories in Beavertown, Pennsylvania; Beaver Springs, Pennsylvania; East Earl, Pennsylvania; Kenly, North Carolina; Mountain View, Arkansas; Jacksonville, Arkansas; Tooele, Utah; and Kent, Washington.
