Nun who opposes HHS mandate among winners of pro-life award

Catholic World News - August 06, 2013

An attorney who helped found Women Affirming Life, a nun who chairs the board of a Catholic hospital system, and a diocesan pro-life leader are the 2013 winners of the People of Life Award, an honor bestowed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities.

Frances Hogan, the attorney, was active in opposing the attempt to legalize physican-assisted suicide in Massachusetts in 2012; Sister Jane Marie Klein, who chairs the Franciscan Alliance, has appeared in a video against the HHS mandate. Barbara Thorp, an official of the Archdiocese of Boston for 35 years, helped develop Project Rachel, the ministry to women who have had abortions.
