Opponents of the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act will appeal to the Supreme Court in a final bid to not offer birth control coverage in employer-based plans.
New plans to address contraception coverage objections for religious non-profit organizations would allow employees to still access coverage via a third party under their employer-based insurance.
Congresswoman Nita Lowey responds to critics who say the administration was wrong to protect access to contraception for millions of women under the Affordable Care Act.
"Contraceptives do not solve every problem. But women...want access to voluntary family planning for the same reasons as women elsewhere: to avoid high-risk pregnancies, to deliver healthy children and to better care for the children they have. And this is a pro-life cause."
That's what Michael Gerson wrote in the Washington Post in August 2011.
