Another religious-freedom suit in U.S.

Woman-friendly Catholic business sues over HHS mandate

Catholic News Agency has a story about a businesswoman who has filed the most recent lawsuit against the federal contraception mandate.

"I'm a total integrated person," said Mary Anne Yep, co-founder and vice president of Triune Health Group. She believes that the government must respect her identity as a Catholic woman as well as a business owner.

Yep told CNA Aug. 23 that she cannot separate her identity as a woman, a business owner, and a Catholic. The government cannot expect her to "carve out a portion" of herself during working hours, she said.

Yep helped found Triune Health Group in 1990, along with her husband, Christopher, the company's president and CEO. The company was recently named the Best Place to Work for Women in the Chicago metro area by Crain's Chicago Business magazine.
