The Trump administration announced today two new interim rules that would exempt, for religious beliefs and moral convictions, all employers and insurance companies—whether profit making or non-profit making—from the mandate in the Affordable Care Act to cover contraception without co-pays or deductibles. Under this rule, the Trump administration will allow all employers to deny birth control coverage for their employees and their families, and allow insurance companies to deny birth control coverage to all of their enrollees. The Affordable Care Act mandate requiring employers and health insurance companies to provide plans that cover birth control without copays or deductibles would still exist, but this rule would create a massive loophole that could deny women the right to make their own healthcare decisions. “The Trump administration is once again targeting young women’s lives,” said Kelli Musick, Feminist Majority Foundation National Campus Coordinator. “Two weeks ago they weakened Title IX and protections for survivors of sexual assault, and today they are allowing universities, employer and private health insurance plans to deny access to no-copay, no-deductible birth control, even if it’s being used to treat a medical condition. Many young women simply cannot afford the outrageously high cost of birth control, which before […]<div>

Senate Healthcare Bill Would Cut Nearly 1.5 Million Jobs

  For Immediate Release: June 23, 2017 Contact: Megan Connor / meganconnor@feministmajority.org / 703 973 6469 Feminist Majority today joined with Feminist Majority, National Organization for Women, In Our Own Voice, and the National Women’s Law Center in opposition to Trumpcare, which will have a catastrophic effect on many women’s lives. Watch the press conference here.  Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a draft of the Senate’s healthcare bill that shamelessly targets women: pregnant women trying to access maternal and per-natal healthcare; the women who make up nearly 70% of all adult Medicaid enrollees; young women trying to access reproductive healthcare; and elderly women who make up over two-thirds of nursing home patients. Just like the House version, the Senate bill is not about providing healthcare services but rather about taking them away from millions of people—mostly women. It takes nearly a trillion dollars away from Medicaid to give massive tax cuts to the super rich and benefits to insurance providers and drug companies. This bill disgracefully takes from Medicaid nearly a trillion dollars and would deny life-saving services to the 74 million people who rely on Medicaid for care. Medicaid pays for nearly half of all births in the United States. […]<div>

Under Trump’s advisement, federal officials have drafted a rule creating a massive loophole for employers to bypass the Affordable Care Act’s mandate requiring health insurance plans provided to employees to include contraception coverage. The draft, published by Vox, still requires said coverage, but greatly widens the scope exemption by allowing for anyone to issue claims of religious or moral objection in order to bypass the mandate.<div>
