Students sue University of Notre Dame for restricting access to some birth control

“[The university is] using backdoor deals to deny students the coverage they are entitled to by law and we are not going to stand for that,” Michelle Banker, a lawyer at the National Women’s Law Center, told The Washington Post by phone. “The Trump administration is trying very hard to chip away at the Affordable Care Act’s birth-control benefit.” The Washington-based law center, alongside Americans United for Separation of Church & State and the Center for Reproductive Rights, filed the suit on behalf of the students against the university and three federal agencies.
