Abstract In August 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a federal mandate that required employers to provide services like the week-after pill in their health insurance plans. The mandate did not accommodate religious objectors like CCU, an interdenominational Christian college outside of Denver. Against the threat of millions in noncompliance fines, CCU and Becket fought back and challenged the government in federal district and appellate courts for over seven years. On July 11, 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh District protected the university from the government’s unconstitutional rule, allowing the Christian university the freedom to carry out its educational mission according to its religious beliefs.
