Bishops versus Nuns on Senate Healthcare Bill
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have lately stepped up their campaign against the Senate version of healthcare reform claiming the bill's language is not restrictive enough on the issue of abortion.
Earlier this week, the Catholic Health Association, and then today, NETWORK, an organization representing about 60,000 nuns, have lobbied in favor of the legislation. They cite how the current system is detrimental to women, children, and the poor. They also claim that investing $250 million in support of pregnant women is "the REAL pro-life stance, and we as Catholics are all for it."
