Loop rally against Obama health mandate
October 20, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Thousands rallied in the Loop on Saturday against the Obama administration's health and human services mandate.
Organizers say the mandate, which includes employer-provided contraception, is an attack on religious freedom because it applies to religious schools and hospitals.
Protestors marched from Federal Plaza over to Daley Plaza, where speakers denounced the mandate and urged participants to vote their conscience on November 6.
