2,500 women sign letter protesting HHS birth control mandate

An on-line letter to President Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and members of Congress posted about 17 February has been signed by about 2,500 women, mainly Catholics, but from other denominations as well.  “No one speaks for all women” on issues related to contraception and abortion, it states.

Those who purport to do so are simply attempting to deflect attention from the serious religious liberty issues currently at stake. . . . We call on President Obama and our Representatives in Congress to allow religious institutions and individuals to continue to witness to their faiths in all their fullness.
