I had a conversation with someone who quipped "I hear the Catholic bishops are supporting the [health care] bill."
No. The Catholic bishops are not supporting the Senate health care bill.
They are opposed to the bill because of the issue of funding of abortion.
Confusion has been created by other "Catholic" organizations and individuals.
U.S. bishops oppose Senate health care bill, doubt promised fixes
Washington D.C., Mar 15, 2010 / 06:41 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In a statement Monday, Cardinal Francis George, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said that the U.S. bishops are now opposing the current Senate health care bill because the cost “is too high” and “the loss too great” for it to be supported. Cardinal George also expressed concern with the Catholic Health Association’s support the bill.
