The Trump administration has issued new regulations granting employers a sweeping and harmful exemption for contraceptive coverage. Employers that claim a religious or moral objection to birth control can now deny coverage to employees and their dependents, undercutting the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit that covers tens of millions of women.
