TIME SENSITIVE — TAKE ACTION FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BY APRIL 8

In February 2013 the Obama administration published a new “proposed rule” containing revisions to its earlier mandate requiring most health plans to cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.  These revisions did very little to correct the underlying problem with the mandate.  A large number of religious organizations, including schools, colleges and universities, hospitals and charitable organizations will be forced to provide objectionable coverage.  Businesses and individuals of faith will lose the right to provide health care coverage that respects their deeply held religious and moral convictions.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed serious concerns about the new proposed rule and its violation of religious freedom.

Public comments on the proposed rule are due on April 8.  

Please act today and take a stand for religious freedom.  To submit a comment to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), please click here: http://nchla.org/actiondisplay.asp?ID=292

The struggle for religious freedom is at a decisive moment in our nation.  We must protect this right not only for own sake, but for the sake of our children, our grandchildren and all future generations.
