Federal court in Missouri strikes down challenge to HHS mandate

This past Friday, a federal district court in MIssouri dismissed a lawsuit brought against the Obama administration by O’Brien Industries.  The court dismissed claims under the free exercise and establishment clauses of the First Amendment.  The court also dismissed the claim under the religious freedom restoration act.  

The court accepted the equivalency of paying salaries to employees (which they may choose to use to buy abortion-inducing drugs), and paying for those drugs in a health plan.  

The court chose not to look at the question of whether a secular business is capable of exercising religion, for the purposes of the First Amendment or RFRA.

On to the Supreme Court, which is where these cases belong.
