One of President Donald Trump's justifications for rolling back the employee birth control mandate was that it promoted 'risky sexual behavior' according to the New York Times.

The administration lists health risks that it says may be associated with the use of certain contraceptives, and it says the mandate could promote “risky sexual behavior” among some teenagers and young adults. By contrast, many doctors, including obstetricians and gynecologists, say contraceptives have generally been a boon to women’s health. The mandate also, the administration says, imposes a “substantial burden” on the free exercise of religion by certain employers who object to it.
