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.
