WASHINGTON – Tens of thousands of Americans stormed as many as 164 U.S. cities in nationwide rallies against Obamacare and its contraception mandate today
The “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” protests come as the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make its decision this month on the constitutionality of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act.
As many church leaders and outspoken critics have warned, Obamacare mandates that all institutions – including religious schools and hospitals – offer employees and students with health care that offers contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.
The “Stand Up For Religious Freedom” rallies are a project of the Pro-Life Action League, united with 70 other organizations. The groups are demanding President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius withdraw mandates requiring nearly all private health insurance plans to cover the prescription contraceptive drugs and devices, surgical sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs, such as Plan B.
WND attended the rally in Washington, D.C., where several members of Congress, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, R.-Minn., spoke in addition to former ambassador Alan Keyes and pro-life and religious leaders. The Washington rally was organized by Jack Ames of Defend Life.

Bachmann, of course, led the charge against this unconstitutional law before it was passed. See my article about her 2009 House Call @ http://www.anitacrane.com/blog/patriots-swarm-capitol-to-protest-obamacare/
