Strong Youth Presence Expected for Rally Against Obama’s HHS Mandate

President Obama’s HHS Mandate effects everyone, but it affects young people in a most grave way.
That’s because the encroachment on religious freedom that’s starting right now with contraception is a first step toward eroding the longstanding tradition of robust religious freedom in our nation to an anemic “freedom of worship”.
If this progression is allowed to continue, our young people will be the ones paying the price with the loss of their freedoms.
That’s why we’re expecting a strong youth presence at the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom. We’ve already had reports of high school and college youth groups attending, youth choirs singing, young people speaking at the Rallies and more.
American youth see what’s happening to their First Amendment rights and they don’t like it and, as the Catholic bishops have urged us all to do, they will not stand for it!
If you’re young, know that you can’t sit on the sidelines of this fight. Join your local Rally for Religious Freedom and find other ways to resist Obama’s HHS Mandate. If you’re older, make sure the youth in your life know what’s at stake and urge them to get active.
