Kaveny's paper considers the role of conscience in the representative United States Supreme Court case having to do with the last years' conflicts between religious non-profits and the federal government over the so-called contraception mandate. She analyzes the use of the moral principle of cooperation in the case and also turns to notions of civic friendship and the Golden Rule as ways to move beyond the culture war modes of analysis marking much of the dispute.
