Health Care Vote and Executive Order Betrays Catholics

Catholics Must Send a Message in November

WASHINGTON, March 21, 2010 — Catholic Advocate’s leadership provided the following comments on the health care bill.

“Today’s vote will go down in history as one of the greatest expansions of abortion since Roe v. Wade,” said Catholic Advocate President Deal Hudson. “On November 2, American Catholics need to hold members of the House accountable for this betrayal.”

“History has shown no executive order can trump the law of the land passed by Congress. Do the un-born have a champion in the Senate willing to fix the bill and truly stop federal funding for abortion?”, asked Catholic Advocate Vice President Matt Smith. “Senator Ben Nelson and others who claim to carry the pro-life mantle now have an opportunity to return their pieces of silver from December.”

One Response to Health Care Vote and Executive Order Betrays Catholics

  1. Michael Henthorn says:

    I am Catholic, and I am pro-life for all. I, frankly, am flabbergasted by negative reaction toward Mr. Stupak’s decision. The leadership and lay alike have forgotten what it is like to be without healthcare. I trust Rep. Stupak made a well-informed decsion, and I trust Mr. Obama to be true to his word.
