CHA, undaunted by bishops' concern, reaffirms support for health-care reform bill

CWN - June 23, 2010

The Catholic Health Association (CHA) has issued a statement reaffirming its support for the health-care reform legislation that was opposed by the US bishops’ conference. Just days after Cardinal Francis George, the president of the US bishops’ conference, reportedly laid heavy blame on the CHA for the passage of the bill, the CHA approved a statement applauding the Obama reform. Without mentioning the concerns expressed by the bishops and by pro-life groups that the legislation will expand public support for abortion, the CHA said:

Once fully enacted, we are confident that the Affordable Care Act will provide access to more affordable insurance products and a greater sense of security for over 32 million people in this country that current lack these protections.
