Shapiro Sues Trump Over Contraceptive Care Decision

Editorial: The birth control canard

Our View: Birth control rollback puts women's needs last

He's quoting his boss, using the very words President Donald Trump used in May when he signed an executive order announcing his plans to offer employers "regulatory relief" from the Affordable Care Act's birth control mandate. "Some women for health reasons need to take birth control, like women with endometriosis, and other serious health conditions".

What's more, companies that have opted out are no longer required to allow workers to access co-pay-free birth control coverage directly from insurance companies. As a result of the Trump administration's decision to roll back the regulations established in the Affordable Care Act, hundreds of thousands of women stand to lose their coverage.

The Catholic Action League of MA praised Trump for "keeping his campaign promise to defend religious freedom".

When Obamacare was originally passed, it allowed certain religiously-affiliated organizations exemption from the mandate. "This provides an exemption, a limited one, for those with religious or moral convictions implicated by the contraceptive mandate", an official for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said in a news briefing, according to Vox. However, this new change in regulation loosens the binds on the definition of "religious affiliation" and opens the gates for any employer to deny their employees full healthcare coverage. However, the new ruling is receiving bite-back from across the aisle.

Shapiro argues that the decision violates the 5th Amendment, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment, and the Administrative Procedure Act. Lawsuits have also been filed in MA and California halting the legislation from being implemented on the basis that it violates the First Amendment regarding the government's respect of establishment of religion.

Doyle also took a shot at Healey for challenging the rule in court, saying she "believes that Catholics have no right to choose when it comes subsidizing other people's birth control".

In fact, it is that notion expressed by Healey - that only by having access to no-cost contraception are women able to "care for" themselves - that got the nation into this mess.
