Attorney General Becerra Obtains Nationwide Injunction to Protect Women’s Access to Birth Control

by ECT

OAKLAND – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted California’s preliminary injunction blocking the Trump Administration’s illegal regulations that would deny access to birth control for millions of women across the country.  The Trump Administration issued its ill-conceived rules and made them effective immediately on October 6, 2017. The rules allowed virtually any employer to deny women cost-free birth control guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act.

“The law couldn’t be more clear: a woman, not her boss and certainly not a politician, should decide what’s best for her own healthcare,” said Attorney General Becerra. “The Affordable Care Act guarantees that women are not burdened with high costs for seeking basic healthcare, including birth control. This court ruling serves as yet another reminder to the Trump Administration: the rule of law applies to everyone, no matter who you are or how high your rank. In concert with last week’s injunction in Pennsylvania, today’s ruling amounts to a one-two punch against the Trump Administration’s unlawful overreach. Having said this, our work will not end until women are guaranteed the healthcare they deserve.”

California was joined in this lawsuit by the states of Delaware, Maryland, New York and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Last Friday, Pennsylvania obtained a preliminary injunction in a similar case, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, v. Trump, et al., U.S. Dist. Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Case no. 17-4540.

This guy is a joke. Wasting our tax dollars to sue ourselves. He needs to use congress to change or repeal. We are already paying them. Obama care is on its way out. That’s a fact. Wasting tax dollars suing all parts of our government says he is the wrong person for the job. Drain the swamp faster before it bankrupts us or adds new taxes.

Oh goodness it’s almost 2018 and you’re still spewing the drain the swamp rhetoric. Your daddy Trump only cares about protecting his own wealth and the mega wealth of others, not about you. He is part of the swamp LOL. You’re a joke. Education, health, infrastructure what a waste! We need more missiles and tanks right?

Becerra is only concerned in reverse racism and pushing the liberal agenda. During his tenure in the House, he served as Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus from 1997 to 1999.

Ask yourself, why do we even have a Hispanic Caucus in Congress. This isn’t Mexico.

Build the wall!

Lol Dec 25, 2017 - 6:03 am

No wall will ever be built stupid, who will cook your food at restaurants? Who will mow youre lawn? Who will build homes? Who will reroof your house, etc? Most americans are fat and/or lazy. Walk thru a Walmart sometime, that says it all.

Rex Dec 26, 2017 - 12:50 am

You call me stupid and yet you don’t even know the difference between your and you’re. That says it all.

Sorry Bub, but I mow my own lawn and LEGAL American citizens built and roofed my home. You are spending far too much time roaming the aisles of Walmart.

You Dec 23, 2017 - 5:15 am

You use to have some valid points, now your preaching has become stale. You have the same takes and same verbage on all your comments, time to take a break. YAWN!

Guess again, the UNITED STATES doesn’t need anymore Becerras! We have enough Libtards with a welfare agenda.

This Becerra creature is using tax payer money to mount 21 different lawsuits against our duly-elected president.

The US would crumble without latinos here, dont fool yourself!

just me Dec 26, 2017 - 7:44 pm

“The US would crumble without Latinos here”. That is without a doubt, the dumbest comment I have ever read on the internet. My gawd dude do you realize how utterly STUPID you are? It’s no surprise that you are a bleeding heart, dumbed down, Becerra loving libtard.

Reality check; 2 races in particular put the biggest financial drain in the United States and Ill bet we all know which 2 they are. WELFARE is a big issue for one and SUBSIDIES is the issue for the other. How much do you think WELFARE costs tax payers? It’s neck and neck with the subsidies handed out in Healthcare and Education funding to ILLEGAL Latinos.

The fact is we don’t have people fleeing the United States to get into Mexico. Never will.

Case closed…… unless you feel the need to Carry on. Bawhahahhahaha!

Dawn Dec 28, 2017 - 12:29 am

What “Latinos?” What we have here are HISPANICS! If anyone can call themselves “Latino” it’s the ITALIANS!

Elizabeth E. Parker Dec 26, 2017 - 6:40 pm

Yes it does! We need more people to tell the Becerras where to go!

Not going to happen!

Melanie Dec 22, 2017 - 1:00 pm

A woman SHOULD decide what’s best for her own healthcare. **** men.

Becerra’s own mother should have had access to birth control

Fortunately, cupcake, my family is not like your’s. I bet your dad was floored when he saw YOUR DNA! Where’s mama now?

Ehh Dec 27, 2017 - 8:40 am

When you use the phrase ” Libtard” is really minimizes the value if your point! You used it twice in two different comments. Latinos arent going anywhere, obese Americans need them here to feed their fat asses.

American Dec 28, 2017 - 11:25 am

I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.

Rex Dec 28, 2017 - 2:26 pm

I also love the word LibTard. It is so fitting since so many lefty liberals are showing what they are really capable of. Calling people fat now are we? Whining and instigating are at the top of their lists Did they really think those centered in America wouldn’t notice? Bunch of crybabies You lost, get over it.
Stupidity factor of 10 right there. Now that’s funny.

LOL Dec 28, 2017 - 6:38 pm

Big man in a little coat! LOL
