health reform law

After causing a major stir last year by claiming that President Obama's health reform law did not fund abortion - in contradiction to position of the U.S. Bishops and every major pro-life group - the Catholic Health Association (CHA) has now backed a bill that would amend the law to prevent government-funded abortion in health care.

In a January 24th letter to Rep. Joe Pitts, who sponsored the Protect Life Act, CHA President and CEO Sr. Carol Keehan says she applauds his 'efforts to ensure the protection of the unborn and of providers' conscience rights.'

Pitt's legislation was unveiled last week along with the 'No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act' (HR 3), which would establish a permanent government-wide ban on federal funding of abortion.
