From CNA comes this unsurprising piece. Here is a taste:
London, England, Aug 18, 2009 / 02:42 am (CNA).- A Catholic newspaper in Britain has drawn harsh criticism for claiming that the U.S. bishops’ concerns about abortion coverage in proposed health care reforms are allowing a “specifically Catholic issue” to obstruct the legislation.
In an August 15 editorial, The Tablet said it was “unfortunate” that the U.S. bishops have concentrated on a “specifically Catholic issue” by working to exclude abortion from state funded-health care. Rather, The Tablet advised, they should concentrate on “the more general principle of the common good.”
The Tablet… The Bitter Pill… seems to be okay with state funded abortion.
