NOTE: While these groups claims to be for religious freedom, they are actually opposed to separation of church and state and therefore represent religious tyranny.

On Friday, June 8, two Religious Right groups -- Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society -- will host rallies in a number of cities nationwide. The events are misleadingly named "Stand Up For Religious Freedom" and are designed to push back against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services decision on birth control coverage in the 2010 Affordable Care Act. We want you to be aware of this, in case a rally is planned for your city. For more information on the events, click here.
