Wyden Statement on Trump Administration Action to Roll Back Birth Control Coverage

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement after the Trump administration announced it would roll back the birth control coverage mandate:

“The administration is now stooping to a new low by attempting to deny women the preventive health care coverage they need,” Wyden said. “There’s no ‘exemption’ from having reproductive organs. This administration needs to end its obsession with attacking women’s rights to receive the health care they deserve.”
