Folic acid, still recommended for women who may conceive?

In light of the editorial on vitamins published today in the Annals of Internal Medicine that advises Americans stop taking vitamin supplements, should women who are trying to conceive still take folic acid?

Unfortunately reading the entire article requires a subscription to the site and none of the news articles I've read today cover it. Clearly I should ask my doctor for medical advice, but I was so surprised to not see it listed as an outlier like vitamin D (which it sounded like the jury was still out on). Women of childbearing age have got to make us a large segment of the population, so I'm a bit confused why this wasn't addressed. Has anyone seen a recent write-up on this?
