Conscience Protection Update and Alert
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In April, we first informed you of conscience protection legislation that is currently before the U.S. Congress. We requested that you write to your representative about H4828, the Conscience Protection Act of 2016. More than 600 of you responded and all 13 of our congressional representatives heard from Catholics. Thank you for your advocacy and witness!
We have been informed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that June is a critical time for this legislation. We need your help again.
The USCCB has prepared a short video that explains this legislation through the story of nurse Cathy Cenzon-DeCarlo, who was forced to participate in a late-term abortion against her deeply held pro-life beliefs. Watch a short video and then click on the link below to send your message in support for H-4828.
Thank you and may God bless you,
Yours in Christ
The Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis
Bishop of Charlotte
The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge
Bishop of Raleigh
