EXPOSING CATHOLIC SUPPORT FOR OBAMACARE

SECOND IN A SERIES

USCCB Pandering to Obama Reaps Cruel Result

By Judie Brown, President, the American Life League

EXCERPT:

Obamacare and its progeny might never have become law if the bishops, united in their resolve, had opposed it from the start and pointed out the specific flaws in what is now the law of the land.

The backstory on this most recent government requirement goes like this:  Obamacare first came to the public’s attention in 2009 as a proposal introduced in both houses of Congress.  At the time, American Life League sent out a warning aimed at Catholic charitable organizations including Catholic Charities, the Society of St. Vincent DePaul, and the Catholic Health Association—three major Catholic groups that were not only supporting the newly introduced Obamacare but that were rallying their troops to contact Congress and get involved in helping pass the proposal.

Try as we might to convince those organizations—including the USCCB—that Obamacare was fraught with problems, their support continued with the single caveat that the healthcare proposal must be “abortion neutral.”  The USCCB has argued for years that every American has a right to healthcare and that the government should be providing it, though the current law is flawed.
