Demand Conscience Rights!

"For the time will come when you will say, 
‘Blessed are the barren women, 
the wombs that never bore 
and the breasts that never nursed!’ 
Then they will say to the mountains, 'Fall on us!' 
and to the hills, 'Cover us!”’
Luke 23:29-30

The Obama Administration has "ordered 
almost every employer and insurer in the country 
to provide sterilization and contraceptives, 
including some abortion-inducing drugs, in their health plans."
Cardinal-elect Timothy Dolan, President of the USCCB 

FROM THE UNITED STATES CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS: "Never before has federal law forced citizens to purchase what violates their deeply held beliefs and ethical convictions. But now the Administration is forcing us to act as if pregnancy were a disease to be prevented at all costs. For many Americans that means choosing between violating our consciences and forgoing health care -- literally an unconscionable dilemma.

"Our country's longstanding laws protecting conscience rights must now apply fully to the implementation of health care reform. For that we need more than rule-making, we need a law.

"The bishops are urging Congress to support the "Respect for Rights of Conscience Act" in light of the new HHS rule and the "unprecedented threat to religious freedom" it poses."
