Catholic health/Charities position on health care debate

Recently, there has been an attempt by some bloggers and others to distort the position of Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Health Association and the St. Vincent de Paul Society on their and the Church’s position on the current health care debate.

The Catholic Bishops have been calling for reform in health care since they published a Pastoral Letter on health care.

For a clarification and articulation of the Church’s position see comments by Sr. Carol, the President of Catholic Health Association of the US in a CNS article.

  1. I agree that any such legislation should be “abortion neutral” but doesn’t the overall welfare of the nation tend to support the purposes of helping the sick? What is more life-affirming than providing medical care? What is a better example of being a Good Samaritan than helping our neighbors cope with illness?
