USCCB action alert: lobby Congress on behalf of conscience-protection legislation




The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is urging Catholics to contact their representatives in support of the Health Care Conscience Rights Act.

“The Obama Administration’s contraceptive/abortifacient/sterilization mandate will begin to be enforced against nonprofit religious schools, charities and health care providers on August 1,” according to the USCCB action alert. “In the days to come, Congress must decide whether to address this problem through must-pass legislation before that deadline. Members of the House should be urged to include the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940) in the next bill needed to keep the federal government operating.”

The USCCB action alert includes telephone and e-mail contact information, as well as suggested language to use in contacting representatives.
