SECOND U.S. JUDGE BLOCKS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION BIRTH CONTROL RULES

Lord, Your ways are not the ways of men. Confound the wise and bring forth Your Laws and Your statutes for all men to behold. Pray with us during the March for Life—go to iPRAYforLIFE.com to find out how.

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! (Is 49:15)

A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Monday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing new rules allowing employers to obtain exemptions from an Obamacare requirement that they provide health insurance that covers women’s birth control.

U.S. District Judge Wendy Beetlestone in Philadelphia issued a nationwide injunction preventing the rules from taking effect, a day after another judge issued a more limited ruling blocking their enforcement in 13 states and the District of Columbia.

The rules would let businesses or nonprofits lodge religious or moral objections to obtain exemptions from the Obamacare mandate that employers provide contraceptive coverage in health insurance with no copayment.

“The negative effects of even a short period of decreased access to no-cost contraceptive services are irreversible,” Beetlestone said….

The judge wrote that the rules exceeded the scope of 2010’s Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, which she said prohibits HHS from providing such exemptions.

She said a nationwide injunction blocking the rules’ enforcement was necessary given the harm states would face if they went into effect. Beetlestone cited the costs the states would shoulder to provide contraceptive coverage to women themselves if the rules took effect.

About 70,500 women would lose coverage, putting them at risk of unintended pregnancies, Beetlestone wrote….

Beetlestone in December 2017 issued a preliminary injunction from blocking those interim rules from being enforced. The administration subsequently issued similar, final rules that supplanted the interim ones.

Beetlestone’s decision on Monday came after U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland, California, issued a preliminary injunction on Sunday to prevent the rules from taking effect.

But Gilliam limited his ruling’s impact to the specific states pursuing the lawsuit before him…. (Excerpts from Nate Raymond article on Reuters)

  1. I pray for a revival of all women in the USA. I pray that they would know how special they are; formed by their creators hand, that Jesus came and died for them, than they might know experiencialy Perfect Love. I pray for courage for teenage girls and boys to say no to sex. I pray they would wait for true love, that they would know that true love is shown in commitment, and that that commitment is seen in Marriage. I pray that those married would seek the face of God who gave it to us to sustain their marriages. I pray that all the brokenes of rampant sin in the USA would be squelched by a revival. May your Holy Spirit, Lord, fall on us all here in the USA. In Jesus name, Amen

  2. God helping us to no be discorage in front these evil regulations that confuse special womens please let stay strong and guide us to continue to trust on you. You promess us to be our Lord and savior. Please be with us in these battle against evil forces.

  3. Thank you Lord for all the ministry You have raised up to fight this battle on a larger scale. Protect and prosper them and add to their number more voices until we overcome and Your plan is set in place.

  4. Another bad ruling from a liberal judge. There would be no dire consequences by Trump’s policy. People could still buy their own contraceptives if they want them. This ruling is simply to perpetuate a clash between the government and people of faith, which I believe was the original intention of those who put the Affordable Care Act together, and one reason why Nancy Pelosi rushed the 2500 pages of legislation thru the House in just 3 days over many objections saying, “We will have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”. Well we’ve found out.
    Your vote matters. Put the wrong people in power and you get evil legislation like this and bad judges to back it up.
