Stand Up for Religious Freedom

Opposition to Constraint on Religious Freedom in U.S. Grows

The Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally in Detroit, MI, which was one of 143 cities to hold a rally, brought people together in protest of the Obama administration’s requirement that most health care plans include birth control — a provision that violates the teachings of Catholic leaders.

S Rose Marie Kujawa, president of Madonna University, attended the rally in Detroit and addressed the crowd. She expressed a concern about how the mandate would affect the institution she oversees and warned of further encroachment of liberties by the government.

“Our question now is: If our government can withdraw our right to religious liberty, what is the next freedom that can be suspended?” Kujawa said.
