Hawaii Catholic Archdiocese Backs Health Care Conscience Rights Act
By News Release @ 4:07 PM :: 2179 Views :: First Amendment

USCCB ACTION ALERT

News Release from Hawaii Catholic Archdiocese August 14, 2013

The Obama Administration's contraceptive/abortifacient /sterilization mandate will begin to be enforced against nonprofit religious schools, charities and health care providers on January 1, 2014. In the weeks to come, Congress must decide whether to address this problem before that deadline. Members of Congress should be urged to co-sponsor the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940, S. 1204), and to work for its approval in the next must-pass bill needed to keep the federal government operating.

Learn more about the need for better conscience protection at:  www.usccb.org/conscience.

Among many other materials, USCCB resources include fact sheets and a video featuring three women who are standing for conscience rights.

Please act today to protect conscience rights and religious liberty!

Recommended Actions:

  • Meet with members of Congress during the summer recess at their local office or at public events asking them to support conscience rights protection.
  • Send an e-mail to your Representative through the USCCB's Action Center.  Suggested Message: "Please co-sponsor the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940, S. 1204), and work for its approval in upcoming 'must-pass' legislation. Government must not force Americans to violate their religious and moral beliefs on respect for life when they provide health care or purchase health coverage." Thank you!
  • Call your Representative and Senators. Contact the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121, or call your Representative's and Senators' local offices. Full contact and schedule information can be found on Members' web sites at:  www.house.gov and at  www.senate.gov.
  • Learn even more on this printer-friendly version of the alert.

Please forward this action alert to friends and family who share your concern about conscience rights and religious liberty.
