We should be free to preach the gospel, we should be free to help the poor in Christ's name, we should be free to heal the sick in Christ's name, we should be free to educate in Christ's name, and now we are being told for the first time that the government has the right to tell us that our ministries are now public services without religious reference… It's chilling and difficult for me to live with that my own government is now saying that what you thought you could do, namely exercise your religion freely as you define it, now depends upon how we define what you do. This isn't just the bishops, we have Catholic University, Notre Dame University, and many others who are saying "You are robbing of us of our identity as Catholics."
– Francis Cardinal George, Archdiocese of Chicago

A postcard campaign (launched in 2009) generated tens of millions of postcards to Congress and yielded great results! Prompted by the Church’s pro-life and religious freedom concerns, the USCCB is hosting another campaign, the "Project Life and Liberty" postcard campaign. We need your support for the success of this campaign!
