Senate Vote Update: Catholic Heath Association SUPPORTS Senate Bill

I had not known this. Tom Peters reports that the Catholic Healthcare Association supports the Senate bill, including taxpayer funded abortions.

Back on August 6, Jack Smith at "The Catholic Key" wrote:

"Since the election and during the buildup toward health care reform, Sister Carol Keehan and the Catholic Health Association she leads have come up for sharp criticism from prolife advocates. For her public support of the president's pro-abortion appointees to her campaign to enact health care reform now, she is accused of being at odds with the USCCB and the prolife cause, both of which have serious reservations about current health care proposals."

On September 11, Jack took some heat from John Allen at the National Catholic Reporter for his column. Defending Sr. Keehan, Mr. Allen wrote:

"Over the years she’s emerged as an important spokesperson for Catholic health care, including the church’s unambiguously pro-life position."

Looks like Mr. Allen owes Mr. Smith an apology.

With friends like these, who needs enemies.

I'd like to see Sr. Carol Keehan's major superior and Mr. John Allen's ordinary task them with serving on a bishop's committee to draw up plans for the closure of Catholic hospitals when that becomes necessary under the federal Obama-Biden-Pelosi-Reid 'healthcare' legislation.

I don't believe Sr Carol is a true Catholic...she can't be! No one that supports the abortion policies of Obama can even come close to being called a Catholic!
Its amazing how some people rise to the top but then again, the scum also rises.
