Wheaton College wins order vs Obamacare contraceptive mandate; Judge: Violates religious freedom



By Jonathan Bilyk - Posted at Cook County Record:

In the wake of a decision by the administration of President Donald Trump to reinterpret federal health regulations requiring religious employers to pay for contraceptive health insurance coverage, a federal judge has granted Wheaton College a permanent injunction barring the federal government from forcing the prominent evangelical Christian college in Chicago’s western suburbs from having to pay for its employees’ contraception, which the college had argued would violate its religious rights.

On Feb. 22, U.S. District Judge Robert M. Dow Jr. issued the injunction, permanently prohibiting the federal government from enforcing the so-called contraceptive mandate under the federal Affordable Care Act, the sweeping health insurance reform law commonly known as Obamacare.
