Health Care Vote and Executive Order Betrays Catholics
Catholics Must Send a Message in November
WASHINGTON, March 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 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."
Catholic Advocate tracks the voting records of Catholic Members of Congress, addresses current ongoing debates about Catholic political participation, and calls upon Catholic voters to support candidates and policies faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
