On October 20th, faithful citizens from across the Country will gather in prayer and public witness to oppose the HHS Mandate and stand up in defense of our religious freedoms. Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rallys are planned in over 130 cities and towns.
August 1st started the timer, giving the Catholic Church less than one year to decide how it will violate it’s conscience as America bows to the HHS mandate giving up its 1st amendment rights.
Join the Rally nearest you and say NO to the new U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Mandate, which forces employers—including religious charities such as non-profit hospitals, nursing homes, and adoption agencies—to provide free contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs in their health plans.

Pope Benedict XVI "The spirit of our age is profoundly secular and secularism accepts religion - if it accepts it at all - only on its own terms. Under this view, religion is subordinated to the political interests of the secular state and it is precisely this subordination of religion to the state that the First Amendment seeks to prevent."
Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, Philadelphia “While Americans presume that the Constitution guarantees their rights, in practice our rights survive or disappear based on how firmly we defend them.”
