Bishops Send Another Bulletin Stuffer on ObamaCare


...the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has instigated another push to apply abortion funding restrictions to the final version of the health care bill.

On Thursday the USCCB issued an updated bulletin insert for parishes across the nation, urging parishioners to lobby for abortion restrictions and conscience protections in the health care bill, and urge opposition to the bill "until and unless these criteria are met."

"As long-time advocates of health care reform, the U.S. Catholic bishops continue to make the moral case that genuine health care reform must protect the life, dignity, consciences and health of all, especially the poor and vulnerable," states the insert. "Health care reform should not advance a pro-abortion agenda in our country.

"Provisions against abortion funding and in favor of conscience protection, affordability, and immigrants’ access to health care must be part of a fair and just health care reform bill, or the final bill must be opposed."

This is not surprising; it is good to note that the USCC has underlined the lack of conscience-protections in ObamaCare, not to mention the mandatory taxpayer-funding of elective abortions.

SOMEBODY has to mention "conscience," which is not a property of most Democrat politicians.

Which Milwaukee-area pastors will "forget" to insert this into their bulletins??

I was one for a time but I don't remember that it was that easy to be a Catholic. You opposed abortion, make life hard for poor pregnant women, your ticket is punched and off to the pearly gates.

Seems that there was a little more to it than that, but maybe my memory is fuzzy.
