My opinion: I'm surprised about this - usually contraceptives are state issues, but I guess the new health care proposals are inducing widespread changes at the federal level. Though access to contraceptives used to be a bigger issue, people are now focusing on affordable access. However, access does remain a problem among adolescents. As of the religious organizations, the current argument supporting them is that, since their employees understand the rules of the organization, then they know that they may not have access to contraceptives. Apparently, since religion might allow contraceptives for medical reasons, people weren't entirely honest about their health history, so they would then obtain the contraceptives. I learned all this after interviewing a law professor on birth control. Feel free to comment.
Obama proposal allows contraceptives to go under stand-alone insurance policy
The regulations allow religious nonprofit organizations that morally object to contraceptives to not offer that benefit for their employees. But their workers would receive a stand-alone private insurance policy providing birth control coverage at no cost.
