Pro-Life Advocates Dismiss Catholic Nuns' Letter Backing Pro-Abortion Health Care

The "Sisters" are wrong...they are misleading people into thinking it is okay for Catholics to support a bill that WILL fund abortion.

The letter signed by 59 Catholic nuns sent to members of Congress yesterday endorsing the pro-abortion Senate health care bill has been dismissed by several pro-life advocates and organizations saying it doesn't represent an authentic Catholic or pro-life position.

The letter says that "despite false claims to the contrary, the Senate bill will not provide taxpayer funding for elective abortions."  YES it WILL fund abortion.

The letter says the legislation also will help support pregnant women and "this is the real pro-life stance."

Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, the president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has already refuted that claim with his own letter opposing the bill.
