The decision by President Obama and Health and Human Services to guarantee preventive coverage for birth control regardless of where a woman is employed was the right thing to do.

This declaration protected a woman’s health decisions from religious imposition by taking them from the Catholic bishops and placing them in the hands of the person. Health care is a personal matter and the president ensured that it stayed that way while ending cost discrimination against women in health insurance coverage. This policy improves the overall care of a woman and her family while ensuring religious liberty.
