General Announcements

Religious freedom rally is Oct. 20 at Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis

Right to Life of Indianapolis is sponsoring the “Indianapolis Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally” at noon on Oct. 20 on the south steps and lawn at the Indiana Statehouse, 200 W. Washington St., in Indianapolis.

The rally is in protest of the mandate of the federal Department of Health and Human Services, which forces most employers, including religious schools and hospitals, to provide free contraceptive services, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs.

Guest speakers will include community and religious leaders of several faiths.

The event is part of a nationwide series of rallies to be held in more than 100 cities and towns across the U.S. on the same day.

It also builds upon the success of two similar nationwide rallies held earlier this year in March and June.

For more information, contact Right to Life of Indianapolis at 317-582-1526 or by e-mail at life@rtlindy.org. †
