USCCB: Senate's is "Worst Bill So Far" on Abortion

From the AP:

"At the White House on Thursday, health reform director Nancy Ann DeParle praised Reid's effort to find a compromise on abortion

was carefully worked through by the leader, who cares a lot about making sure this maintains the status quo on abortion policy," DeParle told reporters. Obama has said he wants the bill to remain neutral on abortion, and DeParle said Reid struck just the right balance.

But Richard Doerflinger, associate director of the bishops' conference Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, said Reid's "is actually the worst bill we've seen so far on the life issues."

He called it "completely unacceptable," adding that "to say this reflects current law is ridiculous."

Call your Senator. Go to or call 202-224-3121. Tell them to oppose this bill by voting "NO" on Cloture this Saturday.
