Mandated Contraceptive Coverage

Mandated Contraceptive Coverage

"On Friday the Obama administration announced it would require most religious groups to provide their employees with full health insurance coverage for contraceptives, including abortifacients like Plan B and Ella (see “No change,” Jan. 20). The only exemption from the requirement is for groups that have the “inculcation of religious values” as their primary mission and who serve and employ people of that faith—which essentially only covers churches. The narrowness of the exemption has angered not only conservative Catholics and evangelicals, but also a broad array of Jewish and Christian groups, including the Catholic Health Association, which supported healthcare reform."
