Experts Gather to Discuss Under-Reported Dangers of 'The Pill'

Contact: Paul Rondeau, Executive Director, prondeau@all.org; Mike Sedlak, Event Coordinator, msedlak@all.org; both with American Life League, 540-659-4171

WASHINGTON, May 31, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- With the recent government mandate that religious organizations must fund contraceptives, morning-after abortion drugs, and sterilization in direct violation of their faith and religious liberty, American Life League will host a panel of nationally renowned experts on the medical, cultural, and spiritual impact of the birth control pill.

"The media rarely if ever reports the whole reality of 'The Pill,' said Paul Rondeau, executive director at ALL. "President Obama chose to make this a national health issue at taxpayer expense and at the risk of religious freedom. So, let's get out the rest of the story to women, husbands, teenagers about The Pill and its proven dangers to the health of women, minority communities, and our faith."

WHERE: Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, 400 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington D.C.
WHEN: Saturday, June 2, 10-11:30 a.m. EDT
