About 100 turned out for the Spokane, WA rally in front of the federal courthouse.

The winds were 30 MPH, with gusts over 55 – and it was verrrry cold. But we had 4 fantastic speakers, and lots of enthusiasm. And 4 truly excellent speeches!

Our keynote speaker, Dr. David Dewolf – law professor at Gonzaga Law School, explained how the HHS mandate is, quite simply, bad law, which no one should support.

And we heard from Jodi, a pharmacist, explaining how contraceptives are not health care, but, rather, a cause of health problems – from breast cancer to blood clots – and, therefore, we should never be forced to pay for them.

Vote for Life and Liberty

And we had speeches from local small business owners, one citing an increase in health insurance premiums for “women’s preventative services” – which she was forced to cancel, so now she and her family and employees are without health coverage.

Special request:

Our keynote speaker, Dr. David DeWolf, lost his son to suicide the day after the rally. Please keep this wonderful, pro-life family in your prayers.
