Stand Up for Religious Freedom

Friday, March 23 marks the second anniversary of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly called “ObamaCare”). Now, two years later, the Supreme Court is scheduled to begin hearing oral argument concerning the legality of this legislation on Monday, March 26.

In February, President Obama stated that all “religious institutions” (i.e. religious hospitals, colleges, and charitable organizations) will be forced to include contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs in their insurance coverage under the new healthcare law. Americans have turned their outrage into one unified voice to speak out against the unprecedented growth of our government over our private lives and beliefs.

On this ominous anniversary, people of faith and values are gathering on Friday in over 100 cities across the nation take a stand for their constitutional rights and freedoms. Citizens are protesting the latest government initiated assault on our religious liberty by speaking against the contraceptive and sterilization mandate found within Obamacare.

The “Stand Up For Religious Freedom – Stop the HHS Mandate” rallies will serve as a time and place for people to peacefully protest the unconstitutionality of this bill and to publicly voice their demand that the government protect their religious liberty.

All of these religious freedom rallies will take place at noon local time in each of the locations and do not require any prior reservations. You can find your nearest protest by visiting standupforreligiousfreedom.com.
