Noon Edition

Contraception Coverage Debate: Revisited

Note: the audio for this show will be available Friday

Birth Control Pills

Today we’ll be revisiting a program we aired in February 2012 surrounding the contraception coverage debate.

Just this week, the University of Notre Dame re-filed a lawsuit seeking exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that requires employers to provide free contraception coverage.

The Obama administration is exempting religious organizations but it has not provided full exemption for religiously-affiliated groups.

On this Noon Edition, we look at why many Catholic organizations say the mandate violates their religious freedoms and why advocates of the health care law say access to birth control should be every woman’s right.

We’ll be back live next Friday, taking your questions by phone, by Twitter, and in live chat at edition.
