Christian Citizens for Life issued the following press release earlier this week.
BLOOMINGTON - Christian Citizens for Life announced today that it will be participating in the nationwide Stand up for Religious Freedom rally on June 8. The local rally will be at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 8, 2012 on the Monroe County Courthouse lawn.
Earlier this year, President Obama announced that employers would be forced to provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, and did not exempt Christian parachurch organizations. Therefore, Christian organizations nationwide are being forced by the Obama administration to pay for contraception against their Christian convictions.
A number of local pastors will be speaking at the event and urging our government to submit to the First Amendment and not infringe upon our liberty.
It is important to note that some "contraceptives" actually act as abortifacients, preventing implantation of a newly-created embryo and causing that new person to die. CCFL believes that all life is sacred and should be protected from fertilization to natural death.
