According to an Associated Press source, President Barack Obama will announce a compromise this morning on his mandate that would require religious employers to cover free birth control for women.
According to The Associated Press:
Republican leaders and religious groups, especially Roman Catholics, responded with intense outrage, saying the requirement would force them to violate church teachings and long-held beliefs against contraception.
