The White House says women’s health will be jeopardized by a Supreme Court’s decision that allows corporations with religious objections to opt out of a requirement that they cover contraceptives.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that women should make personal health decisions for themselves.
Earnest said the White House is looking into how many women could be affected by the decision. He said Congress should take action to assist women affected by the decision.
The contraceptive coverage requirement is contained in Obama’s new health care law.
