USCCB Conscience Protection Videos

July 10, 2013

Dear Friends,

In the USCCB’s ongoing efforts to protect conscience rights, we’d like to bring to your attention a brand new video resource.

Three women traveled to Washington, D.C. this spring to defend the freedom of conscience, after their own deeply held beliefs were threatened or violated in the field of health care and health coverage.

Listen to their stories and stand with Cathy, Sister Jane Marie and Christine to urge legal protection for religious freedom and conscience rights:  http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/religious-liberty/conscience-protection/videos.cfm

Non-Catholic groups may be especially interested to know that the new 3-minute video can also be accessed directly on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ns-M1nYK_YA

We would greatly appreciate your urgent help in getting this video shared broadly. It directs viewers to write to their elected representatives through the NCHLA action center.

Note that while the administration has extended date of implementation of the HHS mandate from the August 1st date mentioned in the video, which will now begin applying to non-exempt religious nonprofit organizations beginning January 1.  This allows us more time to build support for our policy goals inside and outside Congress.  That means there is still plenty of time join the e-mail campaign specifically urging support and co-sponsorship for the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940, S. 1204).

Thank you for your time and kind assistance!
