From Catholic World News:
President Obama will be keynote speaker at Catholic Health Association convention
President Barack Obama will deliver the closing address to the annual assembly of the Catholic Health Association (CHA), the organization has announced.
President Obama will speak to the CHA on June 9 in Washington, DC, concentrating his remarks on his health-care reform legislation. The support of the CHA was crucial to the passage of the “Obamacare” legislation, which was opposed by the US bishops’ conference.
“We are delighted and honored that President Obama will speak to Catholic health care leaders gathered for our 100th anniversary as an association,” said Sister Carol Keehan, the president of CHA. “As long-time supporters of a health care system that works for everyone and pays special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable, we are grateful for the President’s leadership.”
The CHA, which represents hundreds of American Catholic hospitals and other health-care institutions, expects more than 1,000 people to attend the Obama lecture.
Pres. Obama is the anti-life (lethal), pro-homosexual sex (unhealthy), president we have ever seen in these USA.
How does that harmonize with “health” in any Catholic sense?
We must not forget the CHA support of pro-abortion, anti-religious freedom ObamaTax.
Yet, Sr. Carol Kehan revels in this! HERE
“We are delighted and honored that President Obama will speak to Catholic health care leaders gathered for our 100th anniversary as an association,” said Sister Carol Keehan, CHA’s president and chief executive officer, in a news release. “As long-time supporters of a health care system that works for everyone and pays special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable, we are grateful for the President’s leadership on the ACA [Affordable Care Act].”
“This important law has provided meaningful health coverage to at least 16 million people who needed and deserved it, as well as improved both the benefits and finances of Medicare and Medicaid,” she adds. “We look forward to the President’s comments and insights at our Assembly, and to being a continued partner in preserving and improving the ACA.”
Keehan is a defiant member of the institutional Catholic left, breaking with the U.S. Catholic bishops when it became clear the Obama administration would expand abortion through Obamacare and require free contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs to be provided to employees of many Catholic organizations and schools through health insurance plans. In return for her support and the appearance of “Catholic” endorsement of Obamacare, the president presented Keehan with one of the 21 ceremonial pens he used to sign the health care reform into law.
As Catholic News Agency reported in 2010, the late Cardinal Francis George, former archbishop of Chicago, said of Keehan, “Sister Carol and her colleagues are to blame” for the passage of the health care bill.
