Jesuit university to honor Catholic Health Association’s Sister Keehan
November 09, 2010
The University Ministry’s Social Justice Program at the University of San Francisco will honor Sister Carol Keehan, who broke with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to lend support to health care reform legislation after a pro-life amendment was defeated.
According to the announcement, Sister Keehan “has devoted her life to ensure that the poor receive adequate access to health care. Indeed, in her letter sent to Congress representing 59,000 Catholic nuns and more than 50 heads of religious congregations and organizations she remarks, ‘Health care reform is a faith mandate for life and dignity of all of our people’”

‘Health care reform is a faith mandate for life and dignity of all of our people’” -- except the lives and dignity of the unborn innocents. Apparently she's not aware of any 'faith mandate' in that regard. I guess she doesn't believe the unborn are people, despite Church teaching. Ditto USF, another university falling under the CINO heading--Catholic in name only.
