WASHINGTON - The White House says women's health will be jeopardized by a Supreme Court decision that allows corporations with religious objections to opt out of a requirement that they cover contraceptives.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said today that women should make their own personal health decisions.

He called on Congress to take action to assist women affected by the decision.

The court's 5-4 decision means the Obama administration must find alternative ways under the health care law of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.
