Protesters on Friday gathered in Washington, D.C. and rallied against President Trump's use of "religion to discriminate" on issues including birth control and LGBT rights.
"The Rally to Tell Trump: Stop Using Religion to Discriminate" promoted Friday's event with the social media hashtags #HandsOffMyBC and #LicensetoDiscriminate beforehand.
Trump's administration one week ago rolled back an Obamacare requirement that employers include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans.
The new rules stipulate that any for-profit or non-profit employer or insurer can stop following the birth control mandate on moral and religious grounds.
Obamacare previously mandated that employers offer health insurance that covers birth control without a co-pay, but it included exemptions for houses of worship and some companies.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, meanwhile, a week ago issued legal guidance directing federal agencies on how to shield religious liberty in employment, contracting and programming as they implement federal laws.
The guidance included a principle saying that certain religious organizations are entitled to only hire people whose beliefs and behavior are "consistent with their employers' religious precepts."
