Democrats ignore pro-life concerns on health care, bishop charges

CWN - November 06, 2009

Writing for First Things, Bishop James Conley, a Denver auxiliary, charges that Democratic Party leaders have made no effort to accommodate the concerns of pro-lifers in the debate on health-care reform. “'Common ground'” thinking in Washington apparently has more reality as public relations than as public policy," he charges.

With the exception of a few leaders, like Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, Congress has ignored or rejected every attempt at resolving the serious concerns voiced by the bishops—or alternately, has pushed solutions like the Capps Amendment that do not solve the problems, and even create new ones. The White House has done nothing to intervene.
