Worst. President. Ever. Religious employers will have to offer free birth control, Obama administration says - Daily Dose: A Boston Globe blog with health news, advice, and information. The Obama administration announced today that it will require all employers, including religious organizations, to comply with a new mandate in the health law providing free contraception in any health insurance they provide to women without a co-payment. Religious employers that donâ€™t currently offer insurance that covers contraception due to moral objections must comply with the law but will be granted a one-year delay before they must implement the mandate, according to the Washington Post.
