For the women whose access to birth control has been limited by last month's Hobby Lobby ruling, there's hope yet. A new law has been proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services, which would allow women whose employers object to providing certain types of birth control for their female workers to have the costs shifted from the employer themselves to the employee's insurance company. For women who would have to shell out for their birth control themselves otherwise, this law could mean big thingsthe first being a fuller wallet.
Hobby Lobby gets to veto paying for birth control and affected employees still get to prevent pregnancy. This law just might be able to appease everyone.
