The voices of Catholics are causing a stir--hopefully it will grow into something very loud! The impact of this mandate is great. We are strong in our conviction and will not let our morals be disregarded. Have you taken action? It is so easy to become complacent and let others be the ones to speak up.
From USCCB (U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops):

"To correct the threats to religious liberty and rights of conscience posed by PPACA, the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act has been introduced in Congress (H.R. 1179, S. 1467). This measure will ensure that those who participate in the health care system "retain the right to provide, purchase, or enroll in health coverage that is consistent with their religious beliefs and moral convictions.” It is more important than ever that Members of Congress be urged to co-sponsor this measure. For co-sponsors, please check H.R. 1179 and S. 1467 at: thomas.loc.gov."
