The debate generated in the United States about whether religious institutions who employ women of reproductive age have an obligation or not to provide free contraceptive methods if requested is well known (New England Journal of Medicine 368; 4-6, 2013). Two legal provisions state that it is not a requisite for employers to have to provide contraceptives to their employees. However, the debate remains, as the employers state that they should not have to be responsible for the economic costs of a service that they consider morally inacceptable, so it seems that it will be up to the United States Supreme Court to decide this thorny issue.
