Eden Foods describes itself as the "oldest natural and organic food company in North America." Its CEO and founder, Michael Potter, has been prominent in debates over labeling of organic food and GMOs. Unsurprisingly, the company has no shortage of liberal customers.
Nevertheless, the company has been quietly pursuing a right-wing agenda, suing the Obama administration for exemption from the mandate to cover contraception for its employees under the Affordable Care Act. The company alleges that its rights have been violated under the First Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Administrative Procedure Act. The CEO's views on birth control? "These procedures almost always involve immoral and unnatural practices."
Its time for all of Eden Foods' forward-thinking, conscientious, and independent customers to band together and demand the company reverse its backward stance on women's health issues!
