Draft Contraception Coverage Regulation

Under new Trump administration regulations, women across the country could be denied access to contraception, which is critical to their health and equality.

Initiated by Trump’s May 4 executive order and leaked by Vox on May 31, the new regulation would allow any employer or university, even for-profit corporations, to cite religious or “moral” objections to get out of the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) requirement that health insurance plans cover birth control with no co-pay. There’s no backup plan. Under the Trump proposal, if the boss or university refuses to cover contraception, the cost shifts to employees and students.

Religious freedom does not give bosses the right to impose make personal healthcare decisions for their employees.
