The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom was held Friday, March 23 at noon , local time, outside federal buildings, Congressional offices and historic sites across the country . The theme for the Rally is “Stand Up for Religious Freedom—Stop the HHS Mandate!” Thousands of Americans of all faiths participated in these peaceful rallies, organized by the Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society to oppose the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that requires all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences. Religious leaders and other public figures spoke out against the HHS Mandate at each Rally site. Holding signs reading “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” and “Stop the HHS Mandate,” participants offered hymns and prayers for our nation and passed out literature to the public about why the HHS Mandate is unconstitutional and un-American.
