Separating rhetoric from reality on Trump drug pricing moves
Groups sue HHS for documents on new conscience division. Two groups supporting abortion rights are suing the agency for ignoring Freedom of Information Act requests on its new conscience and religious freedom division. The Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Women’s Law Center submitted FOIAs in January and March asking HHS to disclose the complaints the agency used to justify the division’s creation. They also asked HHS to produce communications with anti-abortion advocates like the Family Research Council and the Heritage Foundation, which have supported the agency’s new conscience division and have close ties to several HHS leaders.
