 U.S. appeals court blocks Trump administration birth control exemptions

BOSTON (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Friday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing new rules allowing employers to obtain exemptions from an Obamacare requirement they provide health insurance that covers women's birth control.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia upheld a nationwide injunction that a lower-court judge issued in January that prevented the rules from taking effect.
