Judge blocks Trump restrictions on birth control

He's the American Taliban.  Trying to legislate control over women's bodies for religious purposes.   So fundamentally un-American. 

 

The rules allow employers and insurers to decline to provide birth control if doing so violates their "religious beliefs" or "moral convictions".

 

The rules were to come into effect nationwide from Monday.

 

But the judge granted an injunction stopping it applying in jurisdictions which are challenging the policy.

 

Plaintiffs in 13 states and the nation's capital argued that the new regulation should not come into force while they moved forward with lawsuits against it.

While Judge Haywood Gilliam did not make a final decision, he said the rules could mean a "substantial number" of women would lose birth control coverage, a "massive policy shift" which could breach federal law.
