US bishops back effort to apply Hyde Amendment, conscience protection to new health care law
Catholic World News - May 21, 2010
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, urged members of Congress on May 20 to support H.R. 5111, which would bring health care reform legislation passed in March “into line with policies on abortion and conscience rights that have long prevailed in other federal health programs.” Sponsored by Reps. Joseph Pitts (R-PA) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL), the measure has 91 cosponsors.
