|Text of Fifth Circuit Opinion: Religious Accommodation for Contraceptive Coverage Does Not Violate RFRA (PDF)|
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
June 23, 2015
"Although the plaintiffs have identified several acts that offend their religious beliefs, the acts they are required to perform do not include providing or facilitating access to contraceptives. Instead, the acts that violate their faith. are those of third parties. Because RFRA confers no right to challenge the independent conduct of third parties, we join our sister circuits in concluding that the plaintiffs have not shown a substantial burden on their religious exercise."
