BREAKING: Federal Judge Just Denied The Trump Administration!

A Federal Judge has blocked the Trump Administration’s rule “allowing for-profit and nonprofit employers and insurers to stop covering birth control if they had moral or religious objections.”

From The Hill:

A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit by the Massachusetts attorney general challenging the Trump administration’s rollback of ObamaCare’s birth control requirements.

U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton said the state lacks standing to sue because it already requires that employer health plans cover contraception regardless of changes in federal policy.

The Trump administration in October issued a rule allowing for-profit and nonprofit employers and insurers to stop covering birth control if they had moral or religious objections.

Massachusetts was one of several states that sued over the changes.

Judges in California and Pennsylvania issued preliminary injunctions blocking the administration from enforcing the changes in December.
