Health coverage news

The California Department of Managed Health Care has ruled that my university must offer insurance coverage for any abortion legal under California law. This is welcome news to many at Santa Clara U.... perhaps even to our President, in his guarded moments... he faced another tough year with the faculty if he had been allowed to follow through with his decision to limit coverage starting in 2015-16. On the other hand, there is always the possibility that abortion opponents in the Church, emboldened by Hobby Lobby, will push for a court challenge on the grounds that the State of California has violated "our" First Amendment rights, whatever the California Constitution provides. Now there's an interesting federalist showdown, albeit one I hope not to witness...
