It's time to make a choice

It is time to make a choice for yourself. Which is more important to you: the protection or your personal right to religious freedom or free birth control from your employer.

For decades, Catholic and Christian institutions have not paid for the contraception of their employees. For decades, those employees still got their pills, shots, and abortions when they desired them, often at 10% or less of their true cost, thanks to legislation already in place to protect them. For decades, no one cared. Now, thanks to the new Health and Human Services mandate, it's front page news every day. Why?

Are you buying it? Is it really about a Republican or a Bishop trying to tell a woman what to do with her body? Or is this about forcing a belief system to "fit" with what America believes? Our ancestors came here to get away from governments that would dictate their beliefs and actions. What's changing?

Chances are, you think birth control is fine. But what about your right (and the right of any American individual or institution) to stand firm and say "no, I will not do something that violates what I believe." If this mandate is allowed to continue, that right is forever in jeopardy.

You don't have to agree with us! That's the beauty of liberty. No one is forced to believe anything that goes against their conscience. Are you prepared to see that freedom disappear? It's time to make an educated decision. This is no small matter.
