Contraception Coverage Regulations

In May 2017, President Trump signed a "religious freedom" executive order, calling for new regulations that would harm women’s access to birth control and on October 6, the administration issued them. The new regulations create a sweeping religious exemption to the ACA’s contraception coverage 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. 

We have been fighting and will continue to fight for our neighbors because for-profit corporations and non-profit institutions should not be allowed to use religion as a reason to deny access to contraception. We will file comments on these regulations and will file a lawsuit in court. Failure to provide this coverage threatens women's health and equality.
