Denver teacher sues Trump

claiming contraception rules violate women’s rights

Colorado Academy teacher Jessica Campbell relies on hormonal contraception for medical reasons

A Denver school teacher has sued President Donald Trump claiming his recent administrative rule changes creating religious and moral exemptions to the Affordable Care Act violate her rights and discriminate against women.

Jessica Campbell, 30, relies on hormonal contraception for medical reasons, according to a civil rights lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Denver on her behalf by Denver attorneys Alan Kennedy-Shaffer and Joel Judd.

The lawsuit seeks a preliminary and permanent injunction to prevent Trump and several of his cabinet members from enforcing two interim final rules: the religious and moral exemptions of the Affordable Care Act.

2. She's going to have to prove damages...

... most likely in order to have a cause of action, and her employer has said they have no intention of rescinding BC.

A better plaintiff would be one whose employer was planning on doing it, or a person who was going to have to choose a Marketplace plan that cost more to get BC.

But if she can argue that jobs don't last forever, that something could happen and she and other women might have to switch employers, and therefore the anxiety she's feeling and the inherent violation of hers and other women's rights isn't dependent on whether their current employer plans to take advantage of the change...

I wish her the best of luck.

3. Insurers always covered contraceptives when.......

.......they were prescribed for medical purposes (such as for amenorrhea or dysmenorrhea etc) and not contraceptive purposes. As far back as the 70s or more.
