Religious institutions will no longer be required to fund free birth control for all. Instead, the health insurance companies contracting with religious institutions and everyone else will be required to fund free birth control for all. See the difference?
Capping weeks of growing controversy, Obama announced he was backing off a newly announced requirement for religious employers to provide free birth control coverage even if it runs counter to their religious beliefs. Instead, workers at such institutions will be able to get free birth control coverage directly from health insurance companies.
Glad to see that our president is eschewing the politics of division in favor of compromise.
