Equality is one of the most basic principles of liberalism and of democracy. The principle of equality requires the state to treat all citizens equally and especially to abstain from discriminatory treatment of citizens on grounds of race, gender, or religion. In addition, democratic countries forbid by law discrimination in various areas such as in employment or in education or in entry into public accommodations, whether such discrimination is carried out by individuals, by private organizations or by state agencies.

Religion and medicine have historically gone hand in hand, but increasingly have come into conflict in the U.S. as health care has become both more secular and more heavily regulated.  Law has a dual role here, simultaneously generating conflict between religion and health care, for example through new coverage mandates or legally permissible medical interventions that violate religious norms, while also acting as a tool for religious accommodation and protection of conscience.
