Former Vice President Joe Biden would reverse a Trump administration rule, upheld Wednesday by the Supreme Court, exempting religious organizations from an Obamacare requirement that they pay for health plans that cover abortion.
Breitbart explains this well:
When Obamacare was passed, President Barack Obama promised religious groups that he would not use it to subsidize abortions, and signed an executive order to that effect.
But in practice, the Obama administration created rules and regulations that forced religious employers, and religious non-profit organizations, to subsidize practices that violated their religious faith.
In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled in the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case that privately held companies could not be forced to provide contraceptive coverage through Obamacare against the religious beliefs of their owners. The contraceptives in question included some drugs that could also be used to cause abortions. And this past week, in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania, involving a Catholic charity providing services to the indigent elderly, the Supreme Court ruled that a new Trump administration rule exempting religious groups from Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate could stand.
