Supreme Court sides with Trump in birth control opt-out case

Birth Control

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court is siding with the Trump administration in its effort to allow more employers to opt-out of providing no-cost birth control to women as required by the Affordable Care Act.

The high court on Wednesday said 7-2 the administration acted properly when it allowed more employers who cite a religious or moral objection to opt out of covering birth control.

As a result of the Obama-era health law most employers must cover birth control as a preventive service, at no charge to women, in their insurance plans.
