USCCB Continues to Oppose Abortion Funding in Health Care Reform

Speaking of bishops with backbone (referring to my 'Top Ten Reasons for Hope' on December 31st), the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) continues to urge Catholic parishioners nationwide to oppose all health care reform that funds abortion as the House and Senate attempt to merge their two versions of the health care bill. In addition, the U.S. bishops continue to call for a bulletin insert, which you can read here, to be distributed nationwide in all parishes. They are also asking that announcements be made from the pulpit to draw attention to the bulletin insert.

All of that is pretty significant, though it's too bad that the USCCB doesn't oppose Obama's push for nationalized health care overall.
