President Donald Trump’s government has issued a ruling that allows employers to opt out of providing free birth control to millions of Americans.

Under the new rule, any employer with religious objections to birth control will now be allowed to omit coverage for contraception from their workers’ plans.

However, women’s groups have characterised the new rule as an attack on women, claiming that it could leave them without access to contraception or increase the cost of such measures.

Fifty-five million women benefited from the Obama-era rule, which made companies provide free birth control.
