Why the Senate bill must be stopped

by Joshua Mercer on March 18th, 2010

1. The Senate bill provides up to $11 billion for Community Health Centers. Read the factsheet by the USCCB for why this money will pay for abortions.

2. Sister Mary Ann Walsh explains why the Senate bill ends a decades-long prohibition of federal funding of abortion.

3. Cardinal Dinardo, Bishop Westen and Bishop Murphy explain that the current bill also lacks conscience protections for doctors and nurses who don’t want to participate in abortions and other procedures that violate their faith.

4. Some, like Prof. Jost, claim the Senate bill isn’t pro-abortion. USCCB gives a point-by-point answer to Prof. Jost.
