Source: Religious Get New Opt-Out On Birth Control

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is announcing a broader opt-out for religious nonprofits that object to providing health insurance that covers birth control.
    
The administration is allowing religious nonprofits to offer coverage that does not include contraception. In such a case, a third-party issuer will handle all business related to providing birth-control coverage for women, according to a source familiar with the changes who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
    
Religious groups had said the old birth-control coverage rule violated their religious beliefs. Many filed lawsuits or said they would simply not comply.
