Fight For Birth Control Access Now!
President Trump is about to endanger access to birth control for millions of women. Two days ago, a plan leaked showing how Trump is preparing to allow any employer to seek a moral or religious exception from the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate.
What this means:
One third of women in the U.S. can’t afford to pay out-of-pocket for birth control. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act—women saved an estimated $1.4 billion in 2013 alone. Trump’s new rule would allow employers to deny coverage for free contraception by claiming a religious or moral objection. Not only does this rule violate reproductive rights and justice, it also violates the religious liberty of women who use contraception in keeping with their conscience and religious tradition. If implemented, this rule could impact millions of women who rely on free contraception each year to plan their families and their futures.
Right now the rule is with the White House Office of Management and Budget. While it is under review they are required to take a meeting or call with anyone who asks for it.
