6/19 8pm: Two Weeks for Freedom kickoff online
On Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 8 PM ET, Christians from across denominational lines will come together for a special newscast program that will mark the beginning of a two week period of nationwide prayer and action in support of religious liberty. This First Freedom is threatened by the Department of Health and Human Services which has approved -- for the first time in American history -- new federal regulations that would force health-care plans to cover abortion drugs, contraceptives and sterilizations. Rallies being held across the country and the numerous lawsuits filed against the mandate have sent a message that Christians will not give up this constitutionally guaranteed right.
Join us on June 19th for this special program, "Two Weeks for Freedom: Christians Standing Together for Religious Freedom."

- Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
