Exempting Anyone from Funding Abortions "Unconstitutional"

In an op ed for the left-wing Sacramento Bee, Crystal Strait, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, blasted the Trump Administration's rollback of an Obama policy mandating that religious organizations must include abortion in the health insurance offered to employees, calling it "a violation of women's constitutional rights to 'life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.'"

"Few things are more stifling to freedom than the burdens of motherhood," Strait wrote. "Preventing a woman from obtaining an abortion condemns her to a life of subservience to another person. This is tyranny. That President Trump would authorize a change in regulations that exempts groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor from paying for the abortions of pregnant women who work with them, illegally and immorally undermines the grant of freedom given by former President Obama."
