White House preps broad exemptions from birth control mandate

June 1, 2017

The Trump administration is poised to make changes to ObamaCare’s birth control coverage mandate by granting broad exemptions to employers that object on religious or moral grounds, a move that would impact thousands of women who currently get contraception from employer-provided insurance plans with no out-of-pocket costs.

Any changes to the mandate, which requires that insurers cover birth control with no co-payment, would be a victory for religious groups and employers that have been engaged in legal battles since the requirement took effect in 2012.

Reproductive rights groups are already threatening to sue the Trump administration if it takes any action to weaken or undo the mandate.

According to a leaked May 23 draft of the rule obtained by Vox, any employer — including colleges, universities and health insurance companies — would be allowed to seek an exemption on moral or religious grounds. Currently, only houses of worship and some companies are exempt.

    Excellent idea. If people want to take part in an activity that can cause the woman to get pregnant thEN it’s up to those people to take the proper precautions and pay for it themselves. Why should someone else pay for your stupidity? If you don’t want kids do something to prevent it BUT PAY FOR IT OUT OF YOUR POCKET, NOT MINE.

    Birth control pills are not healthy for women and that is just a known fact. There are many other ways to protect yourself from becoming pregnant that does not require unhealthy medications. I don’t think anyone should pay insurance for birth control pills if they don’t believe in there usage. This is suppose to be a free country and my choice should be just as important as yours. I choose not to, so I should not need to. If you choose to, you should pay for it. Nothing was promised to you when you were born other than what you parents can provide you. I believe we need to take care of our neighbors but this is only for what is NEEDED and not what is WANTED. Take responsibility for your choices and actions and we all get along better. Fight to get what you want and expect a fight in return. Wrong is wrong here on earth and after we die.
