"Sr." Keehan Becomes a Liar

One supposes that for $800K++/year in Washington, lying is part of the job.

Some nun named Keehan earns $800K++, is in Washington, and....mirabile dictu....lies.

To justify the Catholic Health Association's support for the pro-abortion bill, Keehan misrepresented the language in the Senate measure the House plans to railroad through its body next week

The NRLC (not a Catholic organization) differs.

Douglas Johnson, legislative director for National Right to Life, spoke with about Keehan's statement and dismissed the so-called segregation of funds as an accounting gimmick.

"The House and Senate bills do not merely differ on a 'technical issue,'as Carol Keehan would have people believe," he said. "This is another regrettably attempt to minimize the substantive issues involved in order to smooth the way for the Obama legislation."

"In reality, the Senate bill contains multiple pro-abortion provisions, which in total constitute the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation to reach the House floor since Roe v. Wade," Johnson added.

We've published the entire NRLC backgrounder here.

You decide: who's the liar?
