Birth Control Opt-Out To Be Offered

The White House will allow an opt-out for religious nonprofits that object to covering contraception, a source said Friday. Instead, the nonprofits can offer coverage that does not include birth control, and a third-party issuer will handle anything relating to contraception. Religious groups had objected to Obamacare because it had a provision that all women’s birth control be covered, and it had become a rallying cry for others opposed to the health-care law.
