Protect Conscience Rights and Religious Liberty: Urge Support for H.R. 940 Urgent Action Needed!
The Obama Administration’s contraceptive/abortifacient/sterilization mandate will begin to be enforced against nonprofit religious schools, charities and health care providers on August 1. In the days to come, Congress must decide whether to address this problem through must-pass legislation before that deadline. Members of the House should be urged to include the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940) in the next bill needed to keep the federal government operating.
Supportive materials on the need for better conscience protection are available at www.usccb.org/conscience. Resources include new fact sheets and four “voices of conscience” video testimonies of women who spoke at the House of Representatives press conference last month about the need to enact HR 940.
Please act today to protect conscience rights and religious liberty!
