US bishops: Don’t permit abortions in military hospitals
Catholic World News - June 30, 2010
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, urged senators in a June 29 letter to remove a committee amendment that would permit abortions in military hospitals.
“This amendment presents Congress with the very straightforward question whether it is the task of our federal government to directly promote and facilitate elective abortions,” he writes. “During the recent health care reform debate, the President and congressional leadership assured us that they agree it is not. The Senate should not approve this legislation until the original version of 10 U.S.C. §1093 is restored, maintaining the longstanding current policy on abortion.”
