OKLAHOMA CITY -

Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has filed a federal lawsuit over a mandate in the health reform law that requires employers to provide coverage for the morning-after pill.

The Oklahoma City-based chain sued Wednesday in federal court, claiming the government is forcing the business owners to "violate their own faith."

The business says it could be fined more than $1 million a day for not complying with the law.

Hobby Lobby calls itself a "biblically founded business" that is closed on Sundays.
