Southern Baptist executive Richard Land joined pro-life religious leaders and public figures in extolling the virtues of “our glorious First Amendment,” calling Americans to stand up for religious freedom in light of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s abortion/contraceptive mandate. The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom was held in more than 100 U.S. cities at noon local time to mark the second anniversary of President Obama’s signing of the contentious health care legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and to protest the mandate.
