    I know the Bishops are asking Catholics to write letters to HHS to request that the conscience clause be expanded.

     

    Is there a petition out there for those of us who believe the conscience clause should be eliminated? Does the National Women’s Law Center have such a petition or letter writing campaign?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi KP, 

    Catholics for Choice has an action alert up right now for everyone–Catholics and non-Catholics–to speak up and tell HHS that this refusal clause should be eliminated and that the bishops aren’t speaking for the majority of Catholics on these issues. You can take action here: http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5132/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8038

    Done!  I had to delete the part about respecting the Bishop’s conscience, and about “our Catholic faith” but I’m glad to do something.

    “In the case of Catholic hospitals, it is specifically a part of their religious mission to serve all the poor and vulnerable, regardless of religion.”

    In my area the closest hospital is a Catholic hospital. They send ambulances containing “the poor and vulnerable” (Those who can’t afford insurance anyway)  to a secular hospital 25-30 miles away. People die because they can’t afford insurance or medical care every day in this country. The notion that Catholic hospitals are there to serve them is complete crap.
