"Xavier University Halts Contraception Coverage"

Xavier University will stop offering contraception coverage through its health plan this summer, according to a report from WLWT News. The Jesuit university will no longer cover birth control or sterilization except for non-contraceptive reasons. Recently, several Protestant colleges warned they might discontinue health insurance to students if the Obama administration did not alter its contraception rule. Some other Catholic universities, like the University of Dayton, have offered contraception coverage in the past and say they will continue to do so. The Obama regulation allows religiously affiliated organizations to opt out of offering birth control.
