The following quote is from the California Catholic Daily:
Archbishop of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony has said abortion should not be in the
health care reform bill and that President Obama believes similarly. The cardinal briefly spoke to CNSNews.com at a Sept. 22 panel discussion in Washington, D.C. on faith communities’ involvement in immigration reform. The event was sponsored by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank.
Asked whether he thought that the proposals fund abortion and whether they should be amended to explicitly prohibit abortion, he said the issue was “way beyond his field,” which is immigration. “I really haven’t kept up on that, and I spend all my time on this other [topic]. You have to get somebody who spends time on that,” he remarked
My suggestion to the Cardinal: change your schedule and make time to include the essentials, one of which is the question of abortion.
