Protesting the HHS Mandate, Standing for Religious Freedom

On the second anniversary of the signing of the president’s health-care legislation, Americans gathered in 140 cities to protest the Department of Health and Human Services mandate that requires individuals and institutions to violate their consciences and purchase plans that cover abortion, contraception, and sterilization. To stand up for religious freedom.
