HHS letter goes viral

Thousands join grassroots women's movement opposing HHS mandate
Law professor Dr. Helen Alvare
Here is a Catholic News Agency story relating that thousands of women across the U.S. are leading grassroots efforts to make their voices heard in opposition to the federal contraception and sterilization mandate.

The Women Speak for Themselves movement is driven by "things that women are deciding to do on their own," said Meg McDonnell, who has been assisting the group from early in its existence.

The movement began in February, when George Mason law professor Helen Alvare and former Thomas More Law Center counsel Kim Daniels wrote a letter responding to the controversial federal mandate that requires employers to offer free contraception, sterilization, and abortion-causing drugs in their health-care plans, regardless of their religious and moral objections.
