Bishops on Health Care Reform

Alert from the Bishops on Health Care Reform

Catholic Voice North Carolina

October 30, 2009
Dear Catholic Voice North Carolina Participant:

The Catholic Bishops of the United States have issued an urgent Call to Action regarding the health care reform debate that is currently underway in the United States Congress.

The Bishops have concluded that the three bills under consideration are seriously flawed in the following areas: 1) mandating the use of federal funds to pay for abortions (which is contrary to our current federal law), 2) forcing health care workers and Catholic medical institutions to perform medical procedures in violation of their religious conscience and 3) providing adequate access to health care for the poor and immigrants.

We invite you to visit the Bishops’ website that is dedicated to this issue and to contact your elected representatives as soon as possible. You can do so by going to the Bishops’ website or by visiting your respective diocesan website.

Thank you
