Trump administration rolls back ObamaCare contraceptive mandate

Trump administration rolls back ObamaCare contraceptive mandate | 06 Oct 2017 | The Trump administration on Friday announced a major rollback of the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate, granting what officials called "full protection" to a wide range of companies and organizations that claim a "religious or moral objection" to providing the coverage. The decision swiftly ignited a new battle over the Affordable Care Act. Republican lawmakers and faith-based groups hailed the decision as a win for religious liberty, while Democratic officials and groups like Planned Parenthood accused the administration of attacking women's rights. By early afternoon, the American Civil Liberties Union announced it was filing a lawsuit challenging the change.
