HHS Contraception Mandate

Under the direction of President Obama, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) has ordered all insurers to provide (free of charge) contraceptives, sterilizations and certain abortion-inducing drugs.  Even religious employers will be forced to offer these morally-offensive services.

This is a clear attack on religious liberty - as well as an attack on the sanctity of life and sexuality.  The US Bishops have been leading efforts to repeal this offensive mandate.
