UUA President Issues Statement on Contraceptive Mandate Decision by SCOTUS
|Targeted News Service|
"Today in its 5 to 4 decision in Burwell v.
I am deeply concerned by the growing rights granted to corporations by this decision and others of this Court and our
Unitarian Universalists affirm that parenthood and sexuality are sacred gifts. Women's access to key preventative contraceptive services is essential not only to their health, but also to other rights including religious liberty, equality, and economic security.
Though I am exceedingly disappointed in this ruling, I reaffirm the commitment of the UUA to work for reproductive justice in accordance with our first principle because 'justice is what love looks like in public.'"
