So I’m going to jump on the trend of asking people to help get this HHS mandate rescinded. I know plenty of people have already addressed this issue much more eloquently than I can, but none the less I’m going to share this petition with all of you. Even if you don’t agree with the Catholic Church’s stance on contraceptives, sterilization, and abortifacients, this is an outright violation of the Catholic right to practice according to their conscience and religion. We’re not asking that contraceptives be made illegal or anything like that, just that Catholic employers will not be required to violate their consciences and pay for these kinds of things.
If the government is willing and allowed to violate one religion’s right to act according to conscience, what is going to stop them from taking steps to violate another’s rights? It may or may not be your beliefs being violated now, but it could be in the future if we don’t take a stand now. Please take a moment to sign this petition. Thank you!
UPDATE: The petition has officially hit its goal of 25,000 signers 20 days before the deadline. Thanks to everyone who has signed! Keep signing! The more who sign the better!
