9th Circuit Blocks Trump’s Religious Exemption to Abortion, Contraceptive Mandate

(Worthy News) – The Trump administration lacked the authority to grant religious employers like Little Sisters of the Poor exemptions from the Obamacare abortion/contraception mandate, an appeals court ruled Tuesday.

At issue is a set of rules handed down by the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services in 2017. The rules exempt employers with religious and moral objections from the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that health plans cover contraceptives, including the morning-after pill. Pro-lifers say the latter can cause an early abortion by preventing implantation.

A panel for the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday affirmed a lower district court ruling against the Trump rules. [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More…) ]
