League Joins Amicus in Zubik v. Burwell

The League of Women Voters joined an amicus brief in the case of Zubik v. Burwell, a challenge to the contraception accommodation in the Affordable Care Act. The amicus brief argues that the contraception accommodation for employers who object to providing contraceptive coverage is the least restrictive means of advancing the government’s compelling interest in protecting women’s health and promoting women’s equality. The League has long standing positions in support of equal access to health care and equal rights for women as well as the right to privacy in reproductive choices. The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case on March 23, 2016.
