Due to Religious Exemption, Notre Dame’s Health Plan Won’t Offer Birth Control

The University of Notre Dame is no longer offering birth control as a part of their university health plan, claiming a Trump administration religious exemption under Obamacare. As Campus Reform reported, Notre Dame issued a statement on the matter:

“We welcome this reversal and applaud the attorney general’s statement that ‘except in the narrowest circumstances, no one should be forced to choose between living out his or her faith and complying with the law,’” Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins said in response to Trump’s decision, noting that the university had previously joined a lawsuit against the Obamacare requirement “because it believes critical issues of religious freedom were at stake.”
