Women's Rights

When individuals and for-profit corporations are permitted to violate the law in the name of religion, it too often comes at the expense of women’s equality and reproductive healthcare.  Legislation and lawsuits have been filed across the country seeking to deny women access to health insurance for contraception. Using religion as a justification, employers have fired women because they were pregnant or used fertility treatments to start their families, and pharmacists have denied women over the counter medication.

We believe that protections that advance women’s equality and ensure access to healthcare should not be subject to a religious veto by bosses, pharmacists, or anyone else.
