Supreme Court sides with Trump in birth control opt-out case

Supreme Court will hear appeal over Mueller evidence, denying Congress access until after election

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is siding with the Trump administration in its effort to allow more employers to opt-out of providing no-cost birth control to women as required by the Affordable Care Act.

The high court on Wednesday said 7-2 the administration acted properly when it allowed more employers who cite a religious or moral objection to opt-out of covering birth control.  As a result of the Obama-era health law, most employers must cover birth control as a preventive service, at no charge to women, in their insurance plans.
