Hundreds of people who oppose President Obama's Health and Human Services mandate are expected to protest through downtown South Bend Friday.

The group says the new mandate attacks religious freedoms by forcing employers, including religious schools and charities, to provide contraceptives through their health care plans.

The rally will take place on the Jon R. Hunt Plaza directly in front of the Morris Performing Arts Center at 12 p.m.

Rallies are being held in over 100 cities nationwide.
