President Obama could announce as soon as today new guidelines on his birth control policy for religious institutions, CBS News has learned.
Republicans vowed Wednesday to reverse President Barack Obama’s new policy on birth control, lambasting the rule that religious schools and hospitals provide employees with free contraceptives as an “unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country.”
The White House is taking on GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney over his criticism of President Barack Obama’s birth control coverage mandate.
House Speaker John Boehner says if President Barack Obama doesn’t reverse a new policy requiring religious schools and hospitals to provide employees with access to free birth control, the Congress will.
On the defensive, the White House scrambled Thursday to explain its requirement that church-affiliated employers cover birth control after House Speaker John Boehner called it unconstitutional and demanded immediate reconsideration.
