The Obama Administration, slapped down by the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of Wheaton College, has taken a step back from its intractable stance on contraception coverage as part of the Affordable Care Act.
The Justice Department, perhaps seeing the handwriting on the wall after the Court rulings in the cases of Wheaton College and Hobby Lobby, announced Tuesday, July 22, that they will issue new regulations within the next month. The new regulations will apply to all nonprofit institutions that say the faith with which they are affiliated is opposed to the use of most forms of contraception.
