ANN ARBOR (AP) – The founder of Domino’s Pizza is suing the federal government over mandatory contraception coverage in the new health care law.

Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a “gravely immoral” practice. He’s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in Federal Court, along with his Domino’s Farms, which runs an office park near Ann Arbor.

The government says the contraception mandate benefits women and their role in society. There are similar lawsuits pending across the country.
