Today on Your Call: How did the US Conference of Bishops become so powerful?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the Catholic Bishops' history, membership, and political connections. They are currently fighting a federal mandate that would have required all health insurance plans to provide free birth control. Why are Catholic Bishops dominating the birth control debate? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How does US Conference of Bishop influence policy in Washington?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:
