% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Dear Pro-Life Friend …

Our June 8th, 2012 Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally II builds on the tremendous momentum created by our Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally I on March 23rd. On that day, over 63,000 Americans came out in 145 cities coast to coast and pushed back against the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that requires all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences. Today, religious leaders of many faiths, all across the country, have joined all 181 Catholic Bishops in denouncing the HHS Mandate as an assault on religious liberty and freedom of conscience. NOW it’s time for direct, grassroots ACTIVISM — right here in the San Francisco Bay Area! Pro-lifers in our town are joining with others all over the country in staging a NATIONWIDE RALLY to take place coast to coast on June 8th at Noon.

OVER 133 CITIES IN 46 STATES have signed on to join the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom — including San Francisco!
