Obama changes birth control rule

Posted on Updated on

President Barack Obama announced a plan to accommodate religious employers outraged by a rule that would require them to cover birth control for women free of charge.

The administration announced in January that religious-affiliated employers had to cover birth control as preventative care for women. Churches and houses of worship were exempt, but all other affiliated organizations were ordered to comply by Aug. 2013.

Opponents of the measure, including Catholic cardinals and bishops and Republican leaders, responded with intense anger.
