Washington sources reported that a judge in California partially blocked a set of Trump administration rules that allow employers to opt out of providing health insurance that covers women's birth control from taking effect. Meanwhile US District Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland granted a request by 14 Democratic attorneys general for a preliminary injunction.



Furthermore the rules, which are set to go into effect January 14, allow businesses or nonprofits to obtain exemptions to an Obamacare requirement for contraceptive coverage on moral or religious grounds. It is led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, the attorneys general had asked for a nationwide injunction, but Mr. Gilliam limited his ruling to the states challenging the rules. Meanwhile Mr. Gilliam did not reach a final decision in the case, but said the rules likely violated federal law.

Reportedly the states involved also include Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Mr Becerra said in a statement "Today's court ruling stops another attempt by the Trump Administration to trample on women's access to basic reproductive care”.  Moreover the Affordable Care Act of 2010, popularly known as Obamacare, required employers to cover contraception under their health plans with no co-payment but created exemptions for religious houses of worship.
