Abortion Coverage back in Health Bill

by Steve Ray on December 3, 2009

cracked upSenate passes measure that could allow mandatory abortion coverage in health-care bill

The US Senate today approved the “Mikulski amendment” to the proposed health-care reform bill, paving the way for mandatory abortion coverage in health insurance programs.

The Mikulski amendment stipulates that health insurance carriers must cover any procedure that is classified by the Health Resource and Services Administration (HRSA) as proper preventive care.

Thus if the HRSA said that abortion is preventive care, all insurers would be required by law to cover abortion payments.

This ad in USA Today “cracked” me up. How true!

Kristyn’s Search for God and the Church

You will enjoy this well-written story of Kristyn’s search for God and then for his Church. She traveled through the desert with many stops along the way before finding the beautiful oasis of the Catholic Church.

Here is an excerpt from her story, “I learned my first memory verse that night, Psalm 27:1. The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Being a fearful child, these words thrilled me.  They still do.

For months I mistakenly thought this was the first verse in the Bible, since I had learned it first.  It was rather embarrassing to be corrected by a six-year-old.  “The first verse starts with, ‘In the beginning,’” he told me.  “That’s how you know it’s first.”

Thus began my church career.  I loved it all.  I loved saying the “Sinner’s Prayer” on a weekly basis, just to be safe.
