Judge Halts Trump Administration’s Attempt to Limit Birth Control Access

Press Release


SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement after successfully leading fourteen Attorneys General in securing a preliminary injunction in State of California, et al v. Alex Azar, II, et al. The preliminary injunction blocks the Trump Administration’s attempt to deny millions of women and their families access to cost-free birth control guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act by allowing employers to interfere with their healthcare decisions.

“The law couldn’t be clearer – employers have no business interfering in women’s healthcare decisions,” said Attorney General Becerra. “Today’s court ruling stops another attempt by the Trump Administration to trample on women’s access to basic reproductive care. It’s 2019, yet the Trump Administration is still trying to roll back women’s rights. Our coalition will continue to fight to ensure women have access to the reproductive healthcare they are guaranteed under the law.”

Attorney General Becerra led a coalition of attorneys general from: Connecticut, Delaware, Hawai’i, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia.

  1. And once again libtards continue to twist the truth. the Trump administration and Republicans are not trying to keep women from having birth control or basic health rights. they’re simply saying that the taxpayers and employees should not have to cover the cost of a woman’s birth control. If they want it they should pay for it themselves, nobody is taking that right away from them and nobody is saying a woman cannot have birth control. Stop twisting the facts and lying to the people.

  2. Why should an employer finance some woman’s birth control? Should the employer do the same for men in financing the purchase of their prophylactics? If you can’t afford birth control products, then stop having sex! No one ever died from not having sex!

  3. Ya, ask Colton, he is still alive.

    Seriously, Women want birth control, pay for it like men. Twisted ass media against Trump. Becerra is becoming less credible with his phony grandstanding hate comments.
