Justices give Trump win on contraception law
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled broadly Wednesday in favor of the religious rights of employers in two cases that could leave more than 70,000 women without free contraception. In both cases, the court ruled 7-2, with liberal Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer joining conservatives. The rulings are a significant win for President Donald Trump. In the more prominent case, involving President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, the justices greenlighted changes the Trump administration had sought in 2017 allowing more employers to opt out of providing the no-cost birth control coverage required under the law, but lower courts had blocked the changes.
