Another group has filed a complaint against the Trump administration over its decision to soften the Obamacare birth control mandate, which will allow employers to stop covering contraception as part of their employees' health insurance plans. The Center for Reproductive Rights sued on behalf of the group Medical Students for Choice on Tuesday.
"Contraception has been pivotal for women’s health, reproductive freedom, and economic security, and the Trump administration’s actions stand to rob women of their ability to control their lives and futures," Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement provided to Refinery29. "Restricting a woman’s ability to decide whether and when to have children by denying access to contraception is unacceptable, discriminatory, and unconstitutional."
