Cooperation, accommodation, and the contraceptive mandate
Imagine that you’re running a small business in Germany in the 1930s. A government official comes to your office and tells you to fire all your Jewish employees. You refuse, saying that it be immoral to do so.
OK, the Nazi official says. Tell you what; I’ll make an “accommodation” for you. You won't have to do a thing. Just give me a list of all your Jewish employees, and I’ll handle this.
Would you comply? Or would you still say that your conscience still forbade cooperation?
Right. Exactly. Now could you explain that to the Tenth Circuit Court?
