Trump opposes Iowa fix for individual insurance

Later that month, Vox published a leaked draft of the legislation that was under review of the Office of Management and Budget.

He said he expects most companies will continue to provide coverage for birth control and that the changes will only affect a tiny percentage of USA women.

In expanding the exemption for employers, the Trump administration says there are many other sources of birth control.

The Supreme Court a year ago ordered the Obama administration and religiously affiliated organizations, such as universities and charities, to reach agreement on an accommodation that would let employees of such groups have access to no-cost contraception.

The Trump administration said colleges, faith-based nonprofits and for-profit companies can now avoid the mandate by claiming a religious or moral objection instead of submitting the paperwork, while publicly traded companies must pinpoint a religious objection to claim an exemption. No longer will employers be forced to provide contraception coverage under their health plans, freeing them from violating their religious consciences. The thrice-married, serial-adulterer president, who was recorded bragging about sexually assaulting women, and who was accused by several women of doing exactly what he boasted about doing, is now the same president who's rolling back the clock on women's access to contraception. She lamented Trump's action given how vocal and mobilized women have been since his election.

Rienzi explained this is actually about the ninth or 10th version of the rule regarding the issue the Obama administration used for an "unnecessary and divisive culture war".

An Oct. 6 statement by Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, USCCB president, and Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the USCCB's Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, said the new rule "corrects an anomalous failure by federal regulators that should never have occurred and should never be repeated".

A year after the birth control mandate went into effect, there was a 5% uptick in the number of women who filled prescriptions, the National Women's Law Center reports.

Trump's religious and moral exemption is expected to galvanize both his opponents and religious conservatives who back him, but it seems unlikely to have a major impact on America's largely secular workplaces. The health care law did not include a specific list of services.

"HHS has issued a balanced rule that respects all sides- it keeps the contraceptive mandate in place for most employers and now provides a religious exemption", Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at the Becket Fund and lead attorney for the Little Sisters of the Poor, said in a statement.

According to The Washington Post, Trump denied a request from GOP-controlled Iowa to stabilize the state's "ailing" health insurance markets. Real Alternatives lost a suit against the mandate at the Third Circuit Court in August, which ruled that their pro-life mission did not merit a religious exemption from the mandate.

The administration's justification for this measure include the health risks that may be associated with the use of certain contraceptives, even though it did not mention the dangers of an unwanted pregnancy or abortion that could result otherwise. This could impact numerous millions of women who now receive contraceptives at no cost under this provision.

The Center for Reproductive Rights and Americans United for Separation of Church and State said they will also file legal challenges to the rules.
