Roe at Religious Freedom Rally
Several area churches gathered in Johnson City Thursday night to rally against the HHS mandate included in President Obama's national healthcare law. Under the mandate, religious businesses and churches are forced to provide contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs to their employees as a part of their health care plans. But employers say providing such drugs goes against their religious beliefs regarding the sanctity of human life. US Congressman Phil Roe spoke at the event and says he understands why so many across the Tri-Cities are upset by the mandate. "Never in the history of 220 years of this republic have we required, the federal government, required you to purchase something...a good or a service... never has happened..I think it's bad, a very bad precedent for the courts to say 'you have to buy something'...I think that is what this about," Roe said. The rally took place at the Arch of Friendship in Metro-Kiwanis Park. (hra)
