Faith Voices for Reproductive Justice: Standing With Women and Families

In light of the upcoming ruling in Zubik v. Burwell, the progressive faith leaders and faith-based advocates featured in this video affirm women's right to comprehensive health care.

On March 23, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear Zubik v. Burwell. The right of employees and students, as well as their dependents, at religiously affiliated nonprofits such as colleges, universities, hospitals, and charities to access reproductive health care services—including preventive care—is at stake. In this video, progressive faith leaders and faith-based advocates affirm women’s right to comprehensive health care.
