SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 6 (Reuters) - California Attorney General
Xavier Becerra said on Friday he was "prepared to take whatever
action it takes" to defend the Obamacare mandate that health
insurers provide birth control, now that the Trump
administration has moved to circumvent it.
The administration's new contraception exemptions "are
another example of the Trump administration trampling on
people's rights, but in this case only women," Becerra told
Becerra and other Democratic attorneys general have filed
courtroom challenges to other Trump administration policies
involving healthcare, immigration and the environment.
