Send your pictures from Friday’s Rally to firstname.lastname@example.org we will post our favorites on www.StopHHS.com and Facebook.
These rallies were a great success on many levels from the turnout, to refocusing the issue back to religious liberty and not contraception, but one of the surprising results was the incredible coverage of the mainstream media. Few protest sites were left uncovered and many had multiple local print and television news outlets present.
News outlets were forced to cover these Rallies because of the huge numbers involved. A sampling of Rally press coverage.
