Opposition to Contraception Mandate By Self-Insured Companies

RH Reality Check: The Sliding Scale of Sin: Tyndale Publishers and Contraception Without a Co-Pay, by Imani Gandy:

Recently, the district court for District of Columbia granted a request by Tyndale House Publishers to block the Affordable Care Act birth control benefit ensuring that employer-sponsored health insurance include coverage of contraception without a co-pay. (Jessica Mason Pielko wrote about the ruling here.)
