Obamacare abortion-pill mandate 'unconstitutional'
A federal judge on Monday undermined the Obama administration’s position that only “religious organizations” can be exempted from Obamacare’s requirement that insurance policies provide contraceptives, including abortion-causing drugs.
In a case brought by the nonprofit March for Life, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon ruled that those who oppose abortion on the basis of faith or moral beliefs should be exempt.
After an uproar, Washington backed down from the contraceptive mandate, exempting religious organizations. But it has fought case after case to impose that requirement on everyone else.
The administration has lost several times, including the U.S. Supreme Court Hobby Lobby case.
