The Obama administration plans to update its contraception policy again today after the Supreme Court this summer ruled that the Hobby Lobby chain doesn't have to provide contraception coverage to employees and then said a religious school should get a preliminary injunction to block that coverage mandate. DOJ lawyers told an appeals court this month that the administration would update the policy by today but didn't provide many details. But they did say that the latest "accommodation to the accommodation" was a direct result of the Wheaton College ruling, a sign that it could be a significant policy change. "The departments responsible for implementing the accommodations have informed us that they have determined to augment the regulatory accommodation process in light of the Wheaton College injunction and that they plan to issue interim final rules," DOJ lawyers told the court. The administration could say that religious nonprofits with objections don't have to provide contraception at all, similar to the Hobby Lobby decision, which would be a big cave on a policy strongly touted by the president. Or the White House could add another length of distance between these groups and birth control, in an attempt to appease their religious concerns.
