Lexington, KY Joins 2nd Coast-to-Coast Rally
Against the Obamacare HHS Mandate, Friday, June 8

Lexington, KY - On Friday, June 8, as the United States Supreme Court prepares to issue its ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), concerned citizens of Lexington will take to the streets to voice public opposition to the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services Mandate. The HHS Mandate forces all employers—including Catholic schools and hospitals—to provide free contraceptives, surgical sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, regardless of religious or moral convictions.

The Lexington Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally will begin at 12 noon at Phoenix Park, on the corner of S. Limestone and W. Main , joining over 100 other cities and towns from Maine to Hawaii that are participating in this national event. A complete list of rally sites and other details are available at

The June 8 Stand Up Rally builds on the tremendous momentum created by the first Stand Up Rally held on March 23, with over 63,000 citizens of all faiths attending local rallies in 145 cities. With the Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling coming and the November elections in sight, the June 8 Stand Up Rally is expected to draw even larger crowds.

The Lexington Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally has been organized by Paula Muncy –

• What: Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally
• When: Friday, June 8, 12 noon to 1 p.m.
• Where: Phoenix Park on the corner of S. Limestone and W. Main
• Who: Hundreds of local citizens opposed to Obama’s HHS Mandate

The date for the Stand Up Rally was chosen to highlight the HHS Mandate’s unconstitutional infringement of religious freedom, coming just weeks before the highly anticipated Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, expected at the end of June.

“If Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional, we must ensure that religious freedom will be protected in subsequent health care legislation” explained Muncy “But if Obamacare is not struck down, we’ll be sending the federal government a clear message that the faith-based institutions and private businesses affected by the HHS Mandate here in Lexington will not violate their consciences by complying with it.”

Muncy emphasized that the Stand Up Rally has nothing to do with access to contraception. “There is no ‘war on contraception’ in our country. Contraception is already widely, cheaply available. What’s really under attack today is religious freedom.”

The June 8 Rally coincides with the 223rd anniversary of the day James Madison introduced the Bill of Rights to the 1st Congress, including what would become the First Amendment. “We’re standing up for the First Amendment and demanding that all our health care laws respect religious freedom,” Muncy explained.
