Trump Rolls Back ObamaCare Birth Control Mandate

The Trump administration will allow virtually any employer to claim a religious or moral objection to Obamacare’s birth control coverage mandate under a sweeping rollback announced Friday.

The new policies, which take effect immediately, reignite a fierce battle over one of the health care law’s most controversial provisions and quickly drew legal challenges. The requirement to provide FDA-approved contraception at no cost was long opposed by religious groups that heavily favored Trump, and has been wrapped up in litigation for more than five years.

“The United States has a long history of providing conscience protections in the regulation of health care for entities and individuals with objections based on religious beliefs or moral convictions,” the administration wrote in new rules.

The American Civil Liberties Union said it will file a lawsuit on Friday to block the long-anticipated rules from the Trump administration, and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra also announced plans to sue. Women’s health groups for months have been preparing lawsuits against the new policies, which they say will enable employers to deny their workers access to needed care.

    Employers should not be required to give their employees contraceptives and abortions. When an employer is forced to include these in a health plan that are having to pay for them, since most employee health plans are heavily subsidized by the employer.

    Sex and pregnancy are not illnesses or injuries any more than watching TV or eating a snack; yet we would not consider forcing an employer or other people to pay for our cable subscription or bag of chips. If a person wants to have sex they and their partner should pay for the birth control pills. After all, if the girl gets pregnant the guy is either going to have to pay for an abortion or 18 years of child support payments.

    It is not fair to stick employers and other insurance plan holders with the bill for birth control. If a woman and her boyfriend can’t afford birth control they don’t need to be having sex.

    Maybe some company should develop birth control medicine which would render the woman permanently sterile. That would save insurance companies a lot of money since they would only have to buy one dose of the birth control medicine.
