"Now, as a result of these new rules, virtually any employer can refuse to provide coverage for contraceptive services for their employees, who will now have to pay more for health care".
But despite this, there have been prolonged efforts from those opposed to the 2012 mandate, including a 2014 Supreme Court ruling that allowed for-profit companies to shift birth control coverage costs to insurance companies, but still prevented any out of pocket costs.
The enduring controversy, contraception versus creed, hit a new pressure point on October 6 when the Trump administration announced an update to the Affordable Care Act enhancing employers' abilities to deny female employees contraceptive coverage.
She says women can also reach out to organizations like Planned Parenthood that help women access low or no-cost birth control and family planning services.
Ultimately, hundreds of thousands of women could now suddenly lose contraceptive coverage if their employers choose to opt out of the policy.
The change is the result of a promise Trump touted on the campaign trail - a promise meant to appeal to conservatives and their religious beliefs.
Trump's administration issued the new rules October 6, allowing a broader group of employers and insurers to exempt themselves from covering contraceptives such as birth control pills on religious or moral grounds.
Not only that, but this decision plainly puts the religious convictions of an employer above a woman's right to affordable contraception.
Shapiro argues that the decision violates the 5th Amendment, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment, and the Administrative Procedure Act.
Previously, AGs in California and MA also sued to nullify the rules.
His lawsuit, filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, comes a day after Washington state's attorney general filed a lawsuit there that also challenges the new rules.
This decision by the Trump administration is a direct play to the religious right.
