Hundreds of demonstrators gathered at Chicago's Federal Plaza today to protest the overhaul of America's healthcare system.

It was signed into law by the President Obama two years ago today.

Rally organizers say they are fighting for religious freedom.

Citizens for a Pro-Life Society said in a news release that similar protests took place in more than 100 cities.

Supporters of the affordable care act say it will extend coverage to more than 90 percent of Americans and save many lives.
