A federal judge in Pennsylvania temporarily blocked the Trump administration's recent rules allowing moral and religious exceptions for ObamaCare's birth control requirement.
The injunction comes after state Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a lawsuit against the administration, arguing the changes to the mandate undermine women's health.
Judge Wendy Beetlestone ruled that the state is "likely to suffer serious and irreparable harm in the absence of a preliminary injunction."
ObamaCare requires that most companies cover birth control as preventive care for women at no additional cost.
The Trump administration rolled back the requirement earlier this year, arguing that it infringed on the religious and moral rights of some businesses.
Other Democrat-led state have also sued the administration, including California.
HA. This has already been ruled upon. This judge has already lost.
Didnt the SC rule on this with the Sisters of Mercy case?
Judge Wendy Beetlestone is another Barack Obama appointee. Nothing else need be said.
WHERE IN THE HELL DO DISTRICT JUDGES GET TO OVERRIDE THE PRESIDENT?

I wonder how he feels about FGM.
McConnell needs to VASTLY ACCELERATE confirmation votes on TRUMPS nominees for District Court Judgeships. Theres a whole slew of them that have completed successfully the Judiciary Committee approval process.
The judge has no authority to do so and should be ignored after being taken to school. The rules implemented by HHS under Obama were out of their purview to begin with and based on false information by a non government group with an extreme pro abortion, contraceptive bias.
“Judge Wendy Beetlestone”
Voting is no longer effective. Anything decent people want can either be destroyed by voter fraud or by Progressive Federal judges.
The Media-Democrat-Republican Party approves.
Thing is, McConnell is part of the problem.

These left-leaning judicial dictators need to go.
A list of each along with their “bad behavior” needs to be made up.
The House needs to impeach them.
Each Children’s Health Insurance Program renewal bill should include declarations finding them guilty.
Trump should veto each CHIP renewal bill until the Senate passes a renewal/removal bill with a veto-proof margin.
I want these judicial dictators tossed out of office.
The 14th Amendment says nothing about equal protection under the law (it says equal PROTECTION under the law), yet the libs routinely cite equal treatment under the law in order to force their agenda on the rest of us.
Well, let’s use that tactic, as well.
Since their argument is that women have a right to free medical care when it comes to birth control, then pursuant to equal treatment men should have free health care when it comes to birth control (so, men should have the right to free vasectomies).
Defy the order.
“Judge Wendy Beetlestone is another Barack Obama appointee. Nothing else need be said.”
And she’s an immigrant from Nigeria by way of the UK. Diversity will be our downfall.
Right on point. Boy, did we dodge a bullet that would have struck at the heart of our nation if HRC were elected.
