Obama Provides Birth-Control Coverage Plan for Nonprofits

Women who work for religious nonprofits will have access to birth control at no cost under a procedure the Obama administration said would also relieve their employers of any moral objections to the coverage.

The nonprofits will now only have to notify the U.S. government of their objections in writing, the administration said in a regulation published yesterday. Coverage will be arranged separately by the government through health-benefit managers.
