While the law can create conflict between religion and health, it can also facilitate religious accommodation and protection of conscience. Finding this balance is critical to addressing the most pressing questions at the intersection of law, religion, and health in the United States: should physicians be required to disclose their religious beliefs to patients? How should we think about institutional conscience in the health care setting? How should health care providers deal with families with religious objections to withdrawing treatment? In this timely book, experts from a variety of perspectives and disciplines offer insight on these and other pressing questions, describing what the public discourse gets right and wrong, how policymakers might respond, and what potential conflicts may arise in the future. It should be read by academics, policymakers, and anyone else - patient or physician, secular or devout - interested in how US law interacts with health care and religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Health care - in particular, care related to sexuality and procreation - has become the epicenter of the struggle to define religious liberty in America. From insurance mandates to professional autonomy, from refusing reproductive care to 'treating' homosexuality, and from defining life to defining death, Law, Religion, and Health in the United States is essential reading.' R. Alta Charo, Sheldon B. Lubar Distinguished Research Chair and Warren P. Knowles Professor of Law and Bioethics, University of Wisconsin, Madison
'This timely volume addresses a wide array of deep religious, ethical, legal, and technological quandaries that swirl around the increasingly complex world of health care in the United States. Bringing together top scholars from divergent disciplines and perspectives, this book will be essential reading for those who wrestle with power over life and death in a divided country where there are no one-size-fits-all answers.' Sarah Barringer Gordon, Arlin M. Adams Professor of Constitutional Law and Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania
'This impressive volume offers an in-depth analysis of a broad range of issues at the intersection of law, religion, health care, and public policy. ... Many of the contributors are noted scholars and all bring substantial expertise to their essays. All of the essays are well-documented with extensive citations. Legal analyses are frequently enriched with historical and socio-cultural context. The authors' introduction provides an excellent overview of the many chapters.' Robert S. Olick, Journal of Church and State
