Authors

Lisa A. Hayden

Case Citation

Catholic Charities of Sacramento, Inc. v. Super. Ct., 85 P.3d 67 (Cal. 2004)

Background

Rejecting an "employer's challenge to the Women's Contraception Equity Act because the Act was facially neutral towards religion and under either the rational basis or strict scrutiny test, the Act passed constitutional muster.”

Citing Quote

In the present controversy, one side posits that sex is an aspect of autonomy, a vital human function in which men and women should be able to engage, enjoying their sexuality "free from anxiety." (Hayden, Gender Discrimination Within the Reproductive Health Care System: Viagra v. Birth Control (1999) 13 J.L. & Health 171, 181 .)
