The Trump administration has more legal issues heading their way. This time it comes from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D), who on Friday filed a lawsuit against the administration’s decision to rollback an Obama-era policy that required employers include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans.
“Donald Trump wants businesses and corporations to control family planning decisions rather than a woman in consultation with her doctor. These anti-women’s health regulations prove once again that the Trump administration is willing to trample on people’s rights,” Becerra said in a statement.
“What group of Americans will they target next? Will they allow businesses to deny you cancer treatment? Will they exclude you from insurance coverage because of a pre-existing health condition? The California Department of Justice will fight to protect every woman’s right to healthcare, including reproductive healthcare. We’ll see the Trump administration in court,” he continued.
On Friday the Trump administration decided that all employers in America will no longer have to provide birth control to their employees under their health insurance plans.
The original ObamaCare mandate required that employers offer health insurance that covers birth control without a co-pay, with limited exemptions for houses of worship and some companies. But that won’t be the case anymore due to the new administration’s decision to rollback that policy.
