Center for Reproductive Rights to Fight Back in Court After Trump Administration Guts Women’s Access to Birth Control

The Trump administration today issued interim final rules which could restrict access to birth control for hundreds of thousands of women. The rules—which were issued by the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury—create a broad exemption that enables employers, health insurance providers, and universities claiming a religious or moral objection to deny their employees, insurance holders, and students coverage for contraception.
