Join the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom

Posted by Eric Scheidler (February 10, 2012 at 10:50 pm)

On January 20, the Obama administration made it clear that the new HHS mandate requiring employers to provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortifacient drugs through their insurance plans would be imposed on religious institutions.

The HHS provided a “religious exemption” so narrow that it would exclude Catholic hospitals, universities and charities, forcing these institutions to act in direct opposition to Catholic teaching through the health care plans they provide.

Institutions run by other religious organizations would be similarly affected.

Religious leaders across the country have been speaking out against the HHS Mandate, including 181 Catholic bishops, and numerous lawsuits have been filed by Catholic institutions.

And now it’s time for direct, grassroots activism!

On March 23 at Noon, concerned citizens will gather outside federal buildings in cities across the United States to rally in defense of religious freedom and stand up against the HHS Mandate.

Join the effort! Find a Rally for Religious Freedom in a city near you.

    How about those who work in health care or medicine wear their professional attire (scrubs, a stethoscope etc) to convey to people that we are informed and involved in providing excellence in health care and that abortion and birth control (anything that unnecessary ends life or is shown to cause cancer etc) are Not health care!

    Can we try to get a demonstration in Grand Rapids? I know an awful lot of people would be interested on this side of Michigan!

    Thank you for the work you are doing!

    Please change photo attached to URL!
    As we try to tell folks this is not only a Catholice issue, it does not help for the link to post in Facebook with a picture of a Catholic priest.
