Well, if you welcomed the health care reform letter from 59,000 US Catholic sisters that I posted earlier, you’re going to be amazed by this:
Congressman Bart Stupak, the leading “Democratic” opponent of the health care reform bill that the sisters say doesn’t fund abortion, has spoken back.:
“When I’m drafting right to life language, I don’t call up the nuns.” He says he instead confers with other groups including “leading bishops, Focus on the Family, and The National Right to Life Committee.”
Why would he listen to Catholic sisters? They run hospitals and clinics and food pantries and homeless shelters; they deal day in and day out with the parents of children in Catholic schools; they educated many of us for free. Better to consult the bishops and the lobbyists at Focus on the Family.
You go, Bart.
