As Congress begins to debate budgetary issues, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is calling upon Catholics to urge their representative in Washington to protect rights of conscience, life, and religious liberty as they work towards funding the government for the coming year.
Particularly of concern is re-authorization of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents public funds from being used to pay for abortions in Medicaid and other health care programs.
Please contact your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators to urge their support for life, conscience rights, and religious liberty. For more information, click here.
