October is Respect Life Month. Respect Life Sunday occurs in late January. Volunteers are needed to plan, implement or assist with Respect Life activities.
In 2013, thousands of messages were sent by practicing Catholics in support of the bills: H.R. 940 and S. 1204, both focused upon Conscientious Objection within the Affordable Care Act. Congress has not yet acted on Health Care Conscientious Rights, hence neither you, nor I, nor the Little Sisters of the Poor are exempted from paying for abortions, in spite of what a Supreme Court Judge may write.
As they begin their legislative discussions, it is important to remind your members of Congress in this New Year to take action in support of this legislation.
Please send a message to your elected official today or call 202-224-3121 to urge your U.S. Representative and Senator to support the Health Care Conscience Rights Act.
