Judge blocks Trump rollback on birth control

A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Friday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing new rules that would allow virtually any employer to claim a religious or moral objection to Obamacare's birth control coverage mandate.

Judge Wendy Beetlestone granted Pennsylvania's request for a preliminary injunction, saying the commonwealth could suffer "serious and irreparable harm" from the rules. The long-anticipated policies, imposed Oct. 6, greatly expand the exemptions to the health law's requirement to provide FDA-approved contraception at no cost.

“The Commonwealth’s concern is absent available cost-effective contraception, women will either forgo contraception entirely or choose cheaper but less effective methods — individual choices which will result in an increase in unintended pregnancies,” Beetlestone wrote in her 44-page opinion. “That in turn will inflict economic harm on the Commonwealth because unintended pregnancies are more likely to impose additional costs on Pennsylvania’s state-funded health programs.”
