House Republicans have reportedly added language to a new government spending bill that limits contraceptive care for employers and insurers who find the care objectionable based on certain grounds.

The provision was added to a new continuing resolution proposal introduced earlier on Saturday. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) and a House leadership aide confirmed the added language to CNN.

The provision allows insurers and employers to opt out of providing preventative care for when if they have moral or religious objections to that contraceptive care.

The continuing resolution, which House leadership unveiled earlier on Saturday, includes a one-year delay of Obamacare and a Medical device tax repeal.

Even before news broke about the contraceptive language top Democrats and the White House denounced the new funding proposal.
