Gov. Huckabee, Reps. Jordan, Fortenberry Join FRC Action for Webcast on Religious Liberty


WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), the legislative advocacy arm of the Family Research Council, will host Governor Mike Huckabee, along with Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebraska) for a special video webcast program where  Christians from across denominational lines will come together in an event 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 healthcare 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.

The program, entitled "Two Weeks for Freedom: Christians Standing Together for Religious Freedom" will be webcast live online today, June 19, 2012 at 8 p.m. EDT, at  http://www.frcaction.org/twoweeks.
