The Trump administration will immediately roll back the Affordable Care Act's contraception mandate, broadening exemptions for employers who have a religious or moral objection to helping provide birth control to their employees.

What's happening: Churches and some religious organizations have always been exempt from the contraception mandate, but the Trump administration is broadening the exemptions to all nonprofit organizations as well as for-profit companies, including publicly traded corporations.
