San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco, CA)
A western Pennsylvania christian college can temporarily exclude coverage for birth control like the morning-after pill and the week-after pill when it offers a health insurance plan to its employees, a federal judge ruled.

NY Times (New York, NY)
An op-ed addresses birth control controversy: “The contraception mandate in the new health care reform law accommodates religious beliefs. It exempts houses of worship from having to provide contraceptive coverage without a co-pay. Church-affiliated organizations like schools and hospitals need only send a short form to their insurance administrator, which takes care of the coverage.”

Washington Times (Washington, DC)
When the Supreme Court next year decides whether the administration can require employers to cover contraception as part of prescription coverage, the punditry around abortion or the “war on women” will be overshadowed by legal precedent.
