Trump Ends Obamacare Contraceptive Mandate

Last Friday, President Trump removed the Obamacare mandate that requires employers to provide access to free birth control as part of healthcare coverage. The left unleashed immense backlash, falsely claiming that Trump was denying women birth control. Several states have sued the Trump administration for this decision. Democratic Congressmen and organizations such as NARAL (the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) and Planned Parenthood released statements such as the following: This is a clear and blatant attack on women’s rights and #reprofreedom.
