Chicago, Ill., Aug 24, 2012 / 04:04 am (CNA/EWTN News).- A businesswoman who has filed the most recent lawsuit against the federal contraception mandate believes that the government must respect her identity as a Catholic woman as well as a business owner.

“I’m a total integrated person,” said Mary Anne Yep, co-founder and vice president of Triune Health Group.

Yep told CNA on 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, who serves as 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. (Read more here.)
