http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-trump-contraceptives-20171006-story.html This story has receive a lot of attention and false statements have been flying back and forth from both sides. The first false statement is that the women affected will lose their no cost reproductive insurance benefits and that's simply not true. There are already provisions to ensure continuation of the benefits for the women affected in compliance with the Supreme Court decision in Burwell v Hobby Lobby. https://www.usnews.com/news/article...ruling-hhs-announces-birth-control-workaround The exemption for religious based objections was based upon the federal government providing alternatives in providing the no cost reproductive health care benefits to the women and the Trump administration is going to have to do that just like the Obama Administration was forced by the Hobby Lobby decision to make those accommodations. Trump has failed to provide those provisions so far but he will. The Supreme Court will mandate those provisions if Trump fails to provide for them up front. We can also note that the Supreme Court decision on the for profit exemption was limited to closely held corporation where all of the stockholders objected to the benefit on religious ground. It's doubtful that the "expanded" exemption will meet that criteria. A single stockholder's objection negates the claim that the corporation (i.e. the stockholders) object to the mandate for the reproductive benefit. As usual the White House is living in denial of the law and the Constitution by ignorantly believing that the First Amendment (Freedom of Religion) negates the Fourteenth Amendment (Equal Protection Under the Law). That only exists in the delusional world of Donald Trump (apparently covered by Article XII of the Constitution).
