US bishops: Oppose Senate health care legislation until moral deficiencies are addressed

Denouncing current Senate health care legislation as deficient because it provides federal funding for abortions and leaves Catholic hospitals and physicians bereft of conscience protection, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops emphasized in a December 22 letter that “until these fundamental flaws are remedied the bill should be opposed.”

Poll shows heavy opposition to health-care bill, especially abortion funding

A new poll by Quinnipiac University has found that Americans “mostly disapprove” of the pending health-care reform bill by a substantial margin, and an overwhelming majority rejects the idea of public subsidies for abortion. The poll showed a 53- 36% margin against the legislation as a whole, and a much larger 72- 23% split against the use of public funds to pay for abortion.

Steve,

I still say that the Bishops have to back up their words with action and publicly deny Communion to any Catholic Senator or Representative who votes in favor of this pro-abortion Health Care Reform Bill. They can start with these (note that only one is a RINO and the other 14 are Marxists – er, Demokrats):

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
John Kerry (D-MA)
Paul Kirk (D-MA)
Robert Menendez (D-NJ)
Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
Tom Harkin (D-IA)
Richard Durbin (D-IL)
Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
Patty Murray (D-WA)
Jack Reed (D-RI)
Christopher Dodd (D-CT.)
Claire McCaskill (D-MO.)
Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)
Mark Begich (D-AK)
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
