Zubik v. Burwell Supreme Court Rally for Insurance-Covered Birth Control

  • U.S. Supreme Court (map)

As the Supreme Court heard Zubik v. Burwell, the religious non-profits’ challenge to the Affordable Care Act's birth control coverage mandate, JWI worked with a coalition of women’s groups to organize a rally on the courthouse steps, speaking out for every woman's right to insurance-covered birth control. We signed on to an amicus brief in the case, and our CEO Lori Weinstein spoke to the crowd:

"Birth control is health care. Birth control is also the foundation for women to live as equal citizens; to pursue their education and career goals; to build healthy families; to control their future; and to realize their full potential. Birth control with insurance coverage is our legal right."
