Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is expected to sign into law a bill requiring insurers to continue offering coverage for prescription contraceptives. The bill is in response to President Trump's executive order allowing employers to opt out of providing coverage due to moral or religious objections.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with WBUR's Carey Goldberg (@commonhealth) about the Massachusetts legislation.
