On that day pro-life and religious groups will gather at federal buildings in Washington D.C., New York, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and more to demonstrate in defense of religious liberty.
Occupy Contraceptive Mandate? No, our side isn’t into violence, rape, drug use, filth, destruction, and incoherence.
No, on March 23 citizens who love America and the freedom upon which our country was founded will gather with one rallying cry: “Stand Up for Religious Freedom – Stop the HHS Mandate!”
The demonstrations, organized by Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and the Pro-Life Action League, will oppose the new mandate handed down by theU.S. Department of Health and Human Services that requires all employers to provide free contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization through their health plans. Religious leaders and other public figures will speak out against the HHS mandate.
The HHS provided a “religious exemption” so narrow it would exclude religious hospitals, universities, and charities, forcing these institutions to violate their teachings through the health care plans they provide. In short, the HHS mandate violates the First Amendment to the Constitution.
CPS and PLAL have formed the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Coalition, comprised of dozens of local and national pro-life and pro-family organizations, to fight the HHS Mandate through direct action. Go to the webpage to find more information for the nearest rally to you.
