The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has sent out this urgent alert: Last call to contact the Administration regarding the contraceptive / abortifacient / sterilization mandate!

Dear Friend:

If you haven’t done so yet, please email a short comment to the Obama Administration opposing the latest version of the contraceptive/abortifacient/sterilization mandate. Comments are due this Monday, April 8!

It only takes two minutes to explain to the Administration why its latest “proposed rule” still violates religious freedom and rights of conscience. Yet it is very important that you make your voice heard!

To learn more about the Administration’s latest proposal, please check out our one-page fact sheet and pass it along to others. If you’d like to read more, please see the USCCB’s news release and full set of comments on the latest (but largely unchanged) proposal from the Administration.

Please file your comments with the Administration today! The deadline is Monday, April 8. Encourage others who support religious freedom and conscience rights to do the same!

You can send your comments using this link: http://actions.nchla.org/NCHLA/Campaigns/30843/Respond
According to news reports, over 140,000 comments have been filed with HHS so far – the majority from people concerned about religious freedom! Thank you to those of you who have already filed comments. We are grateful for all that you do in support of life and liberty.

P.S. Please alert friends and family who share your concern about conscience rights and religious liberty.

Text the word FREEDOM (or LIBERTAD) to 377377 for mobile updates on religious liberty.
