Sr. Keehan with Vice President Joe Biden

UPDATE March 16: Archbishop Naumann contradicts CHA and asks for calls to swing votes.

The U.S. Catholic Bishops issued an emergency alert for parishioners to receive Sunday, urging opposition to the U.S. Senate health bill, Sr. Carol Keehan, head of the national Catholic Hospital Association, brazenly is supporting the bill, the AP reported Saturday.

(Pro-lifers: take action here)

Keehan has been faulted for being too closely allied with the push for universal health care.

Pro-lifers are grasping for any ray of hope after Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson’s abortion sellout this weekend—in which he “blessed” a worthless abortion proposal in order to advance a health bill to a vote by Christmas Eve.

kingToday’s (Tues. Nov. 3)  Washington Post headline above (written before the great election returns came in, which makes it even better) warms the cockles of my heart!

Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Planned Parenthood and NARAL, like the King of England watching William Wallace, can’t believe it!

Of course, the fight is far from over, but while the swords clash, something strikes me again that I’ve long known: the millions spent by Obama-Care opponents on regular lobbying groups are misplaced.  It is the poor, but effective, grassroots groups like ours (that are so busy on the front lines that we’ve barely had time to send out our Fall fundraising letters), and our good friends, the Tea Partiers, that are really making a difference!

If you want to defeat Obama/Pelosi/Reid-Care, then invest in  the truth uniquely offered by pro-life efforts that, as the headline suggests, may well end up being the ONLY issue that, since it crosses party lines, can truly defeat this horrible abortion/death laden so-called “health care” bill!
