Obamacare to Cover Abortions in Pennsylvania - Bishop Lynch Call Your Office

Surprise, surprise, the Executive Order signed by President Obama is not preventing funds from going to perform abortions.  The federal government recently approved $160 million in funding for the State of Pennsylvania.  This money will go to set up a high risk insurance pool which will cover abortions.

Jill Stanek and Tom Peters are providing detailed coverage of this betrayal.  If you live in Pennsylvania, write to Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper and ask her to stand up against this misuse of funds.  She was one of the "pro life" Democratic representatives who changed their vote to approve Obamacare after the president promised his executive order. 

Another group who should be contacted is the Catholic Health Association, headed by Sister Carol Keehan.  Sister Carol, who stood prominently behind President Obama when he signed the legislation, was a driving force for its passage.  This organization, along with a group of nuns who sent a letter to Capitol Hill supporting the health care bill, provided cover to Catholic politicians who put politics before morality.  Unfortunately, it was clear from the start that abortion was to be included.  It's just amazing, however, that the duplicity goes unchecked.

Now it's time for the bishops to do something about this organization.  They should not be able to use the title "Catholic".  And it's time for Bishop Lynch to resign from the board.  How else can Catholics stand up for the teaching of the Church if they do not receive support from the hierarchy?  If the bishops don't stand strong, the world will continue to point to these rogue groups as representing the true faith.
