NWLC: What does religious freedom mean

Take Action

True religious freedom means that everyone has the right to make his or her own personal decisions, including whether to use birth control. But some bosses want to impose their religious beliefs on their employees. Last time I checked, your employees had religious beliefs, too.
The April 8 deadline to stop these bosses is fast approaching!

Show your support for the plan to make birth control coverage without co-pays and hassles available to women no matter where they work.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently released a proposed rule whose goal is making birth control without co-pays and hassles a reality regardless of where a woman works, and the agency is asking people to comment on it. But some lawmakers and religious organizations don’t agree. They believe that if your boss has a certain religious belief, you’d better live by it, too.
This is your last chance to show your support — we need to speak out and make sure that essential health care like birth control is available for all women who need it.

Tell HHS you support its plan to make birth control coverage without co-pays and hassles available to women, regardless of where they work.
The reality is that nearly 99% of sexually active women, regardless of their religious beliefs, use contraception at some point in their lives. It’s crucial that women have access to affordable birth control to prevent unintended pregnancies, plan the timing and size of their families, and protect their health.
Thank you for everything you do in the fight for reproductive health.
Sincerely,
