    The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Trump administration after it rolled back measures on birth control.

    Employers will now be exempt from providing health insurance to their employees that covers contraceptives.

    The measure is aimed at protecting religious freedom.

    The lawsuit claims the change would be unconstitutional.

    Al Jazeera's Diane Eastabrook reports from Washington, DC.
