New Rule Permits All Employers to Opt Out of Birth Control Coverage, Sweeping Step Toward Completely Dismantling the Birth Control Benefit
The Trump Administration just took direct aim at birth control coverage for 62 million women, eliminating the guarantee that health insurance would cover contraception.
WASHINGTON, DC The Trump administration has taken direct aim at birth control coverage for more than 62 million American women, eliminating the guarantee they had for coverage for birth control regardless of who they work for. On Friday morning, they announced a sweeping new rule to eliminate the Affordable Care Acts requirement that all insurance plans must cover birth control without a co-pay or otherwise ensure access to birth control coverage for women whose employers or schools can legally opt out of providing coverage.
Statement from Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
The Trump administration just took direct aim at birth control coverage for 62 million women. This is an unacceptable attack on basic health care that the vast majority of women rely on. With this rule in place, any employer could decide that their employees no longer have health insurance coverage for birth control.
Were talking about a fundamental right -- to be able to decide whether and when you want to have children.

Getting freebies is not a “Right” you want birth control, BUY IT..its CHEAP..but these women want freebies, they want EVERYTHING free, abortions, birth control..everything..nothing in this world is a “Right” you want it..BUY IT with YOUR OWN MONEY
Pay for your own pre-abortion pills.
These women can’t afford $15 a month? Bet the spend more than that on mascara
No problem here. Let the stud pick up his own tab.
Obamacare raised my rates by an effective 65%. No reason I should pay for others’ recreational copulation.
Actually, Trump’s order only covers those with religious objections to paying.
True..but these crazy baby murdering pricks want every institution to be FORCED to pay for it..that’s why Im saying, they want it SO badly, they can BUY IT with their own money..but these nuts believe that its the job of the Govt to pay for EVERYTHING they want
Is the RKBA a Constitutional, God-given right or not?
Why must we compromise on a right written in blood but not a "right" pulled from the asses of SCOTUS in 1973?
We need reasonable, common-sense, sensible restrictions on abortions. Where is the bipartisanship on this?
If it can JUST save one life. ONE LIFE!!!
Why are Democrats in the pockets of the abortion lobby?
Looks to me like the Trump Administration just took aim at protecting UNBORN women.
It’s not about “parenthood” and it is not “planned.” This bloodthirsty agency, started by the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger, makes its money by providing abortions—the murder of unborn humans in the womb. Enough of the newspeak word games and the charade.
The left is acting like birth control is being banned.
Health insurance isnt about paying for on demand recreational drugs.
So now ai am responsible for fornicating women I do not even know.
And biscuit liberal women will hand out all the goodies of freedom to islamists to get it!
can we please no longer fund planned parenthood with tax money ?
If we are forced against our will and conscience to subsidize contraception for them they should be forced to subsidize our second ammendment rights.
It’s not even that high, closer to 9.00 is the average.
Good, I hope this disgusting evil witch strokes out over this.
Weird thing. Not a country and western fan but heard a few Waylon Jennings songs that I liked a lot. Then I found out he was deceased. Damn.
Not my responsibility.
Neither are your kids, wife,husband or you
