As previously communicated here at BCI, the Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society have announced that the next Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally are taking place today, Friday, June 8, in cities and towns across the United States. There are two in the Boston area today–one at noontime in Boston and one at 6:30pm in West Roxbury.
The June 8 Stand Up Rally builds on the tremendous momentum created by the first Stand Up Rally on March 23.
On that day, over 63,000 Americans came out in 145 cities coast to coast pushed back against 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.
The rally in Boston is taking place at 12pm on Boston Common, at Beacon Street and Park Street, just across from the State House. If you can make it, please do try to attend. Click here for more information.
A Boston neighborhood Rally will also take place at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Name Rotary, 1689 Centre Street in West Roxbury.
It is important that Catholics exercise every means possible to prevent the trampling of our religious freedoms. Please do support these efforts and participate if you are able.
