White House To Tweak Birth Control Coverage Rule For Nonprofits
It’s from Huffington Post, but I think many here will like the news in the article nonetheless.
"WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is developing a new accommodation for religious nonprofit organizations that want to opt out of covering contraception in their health plans without having to fill out a form, according to a brief the Department of Justice filed on Tuesday in the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
The move follows the Supreme Court’s recent decision granting a temporary injunction to Wheaton College, an evangelical Protestant school in Illinois that is suing the administration over the contraception coverage rule. The Affordable Care Act requires all for-profit employers to cover contraception in their health plans at no cost to their employees, but contains a special accommodation for religiously affiliated nonprofits, such as schools and hospitals."
