In an interview with NPR about the Zubik v. Burwell Supreme Court case, Georgetown University student and Americans United law clerk Allison Tanner explained why it was necessary for students of religiously affiliated universities to receive contraception coverage from their schools.
"The burden is light," she said, referring to the opt out religiously affiliated institutions currently have through the ACA. "The burden on the woman who will not have insurance access to contraception is heavy without some form of workaround for the religious objection."
Allison was a key force in gathering the 240 students, faculty, and staff at religiously affiliated universities for our amicus brief. You can read our brief and learn more about Zubik v. Burwell here.
