On October 6, the Trump administration issued interim regulations that harm women’s access to birth control, creating a sweeping religious exemption to the ACA’s birth control benefit. They allow any corporation or university to use religion to deny their employees and students coverage for birth control. But whether a woman uses birth control should be up to her, not her boss or university.
In response, lawmakers introduced the Protect Access To Birth Control Act, which would roll back the Trump administration’s harmful regulations. This important legislation protects women’s health and equality, because denying women access to vital healthcare is discrimination, plain and simple.
