Dear Linda May,
We need your help. As you know, on February 10, the Obama Administration made final the U.S. Health and Human Services' rule on women's preventative services including a mandate for contraceptive coverage "without change;" delayed enforcement for a year against religious nonprofits that were still not exempted (e.g. Catholic charities, hospitals, and colleges); and promised to develop more regulations to "accommodate" them by the end of that additional year. But the promised "accommodation" still forces Catholic institutions like NCCW to pay for "services" that violate our religious convictions.
The National Council of Catholic Women is working closely with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to support legislation to correct the mandate's threats to religious liberty and conscience rights.
This is the time when the voice of Catholic women needs to be heard loud and clear. With your support, NCCW can continue our advocacy work on Capitol Hill and our efforts to be active and engaged as leaders.
We want to be a part of the solution. With your contribution, we will help stop this attack on religious liberty and our freedom to serve those in need.
Please contribute to NCCW today and ensure that your voice is heard. All contributions are thankfully accepted. Click here to make your contribution online at www.nccw2.org/register/registration. Or send your donation today to NCCW Special Appeal, 200 North Glebe Road, Suite 725, Arlington, VA 22203.
And if you know others who might want to add their voices to NCCW efforts, please feel free to forward this appeal.
God bless you,
