Supreme Court questions Trump’s rollback of birth control coverage

At issue was a Trump policy allowing virtually any employer to claim a religious or moral exemption to providing free birth control to women..

..The court’s conservative majority was expected to side with the administration’s weakening of the contraceptive coverage requirement under Obamacare. However, Chief Justice John Roberts joined some of his liberal colleagues in questioning whether [Trump’s] rollback of the policy went too far.

…”The glaring feature of what the government has done in expanding this exemption is to toss to the winds entirely Congress’ instruction that women need and shall have seamless, no-cost comprehensive coverage,” Ginsburg said.

…The court, which is also hearing a challenge on political robocalls Wednesday, during this period will also consider Trump’s request to shield his financial records and states’ ability to punish so-called faithless presidential electors.
