In March, the Supreme Court will be hearing the first cases on the ACA requirement that insurance plans include contraception as a basic health service. Cases are being brought by for profit companies and not for profit organizations that seek to deny contraception to women employees because of the religious beliefs of the employer. The Religious Institute is hard at work on a number of initiatives to demonstrate that people of faith support family planning. To date, more than 1,100 religious leaders have endorsed our Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Family Planning. We’d like to have that reach 2,000 by March 1st. If you are a clergyperson, religious leader, religious academician, theologian, or staff at a religious organization, you can add your support by clicking the link to endorse below.
