President Trump’s latest executive order titled “Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty,” potentially ends the enforcement of the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services (HHS) contraception mandate requiring all employers — including religious institutions — to provide health insurance that covers contraception.
