When religion is used as a justification to deny healthcare, it puts patients’ health and well-being in jeopardy, and can cause catastrophic harm to those critically in need of care. Yet politicians, employers, hospitals, and medical professionals are denying Americans—most often women and LGBTQ Americans—healthcare and health insurance in the name of religion. Across the country religion is being used as an excuse to thwart access to contraception, fertility treatments, and mental health counseling. At Protect Thy Neighbor, we believe that no one’s access to health care should be blocked by someone else’s religious beliefs.
