SCOTUS: Employers do not have to provide contraceptives to employees based on moral or religious grounds

The Supreme Court Wednesday cleared the way for a Trump administration regulation that would free employers from providing contraceptives to their employees if the company’s owners have a religious or moral objection, potentially leaving more than 120,000 women with no coverage.

The 7-2 decision goes further than before in shielding companies, colleges and charities from the part of Obamacare that requires employers with more than 50 employees to pay the cost of preventive healthcare, including the full range of contraceptives.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.
