HHS Final Rule Would Expand Ability of Businesses and Individuals to Refuse to Provide Necessary Health Care on the Basis of Their Own Beliefs 

Motion is Supported by Dozens of Public Health Experts from Across the U.S.

NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James, leading a coalition of 23 states, cities, and municipalities, today filed a motion to seek a preliminary injunction to stop the Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from adopting a Final Rule that would expand the ability of businesses and individuals to refuse to provide necessary health care on the basis of businesses' or employees’ “religious beliefs or moral convictions.” The motion is supported by declarations from 48 leading public health professionals from states across the country. Attorney General James, leading a coalition of 23 cities and states, filed a lawsuit against HHS in May 2019 to challenge this discriminatory rule.
