Action urged on conscience-protection legislation

Catholic World News - August 09, 2013

The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA), which works closely with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on abortion-related legislation, is urging pro-life Americans to speak with members of Congress in support of the Health Care Conscience Rights Act.

During the summer recess, members of Congress “will be learning what is important to their constituents, and this will influence their actions when they return in the fall,” an NCHLA action alert noted. “Please use this opportunity to ask your Representative and Senators to support H.R. 940/S. 1204.”

The NCHLA also provides a link to contact representatives and senators by e-mail.
