The National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, representing 59,000 Catholic Nuns came out in support of Obama’s health care plan today- going against the Catholic Bishops, who are opposed.
You go girls! : )
In their statement, they say, “We have witnessed firsthand the impact of our national health care crisis, particularly its impact on women, children and people who are poor. We see the toll on families who have delayed seeking care due to a lack of health insurance coverage or lack of funds with which to pay high deductibles and co-pays. We have counseled and prayed with men, women and children who have been denied health care coverage by insurance companies. We have witnessed early and avoidable deaths because of delayed medical treatment.”
Apparently some Catholics, 59,000 of them are in touch with human rights over politics and are able to reason beyond untrue sound bites related to abortion. “And despite false claims to the contrary, the Senate bill will not provide taxpayer funding for elective abortions.”… “This is the REAL pro-life stance, and we as Catholics are all for it.”
Oh, if only their ‘brothers’ would listen to them…
