Sr Carol Keehan Talks Out Of Both Sides Of Mouth

Sr Carol must be smarting from well-deserved rebukes that faithful Catholics have been giving her, since she sold unborn babies and elderly/infirm people down the river with her despicable support of the Obama Hell Bill.  She is supporting (well, kinda!) the Protect Life Act, H.R. 358.  She wrote to Joe Pitts, and I quote (from Lifenews, and I'll highlight interesting portions) the following.

I am writing to applaud your efforts to ensure the protection of the unborn and of providers’ conscience rightsWe want to offer our support for your legislation, H.R. 358, the Protect Life Act.  While we continue to believe the current provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) prevent federal funding of abortion (Sister, whom do you think you're fooling?), your legislation will provide further protection by codifying the Hyde amendment relative to the new health care reform law. We also appreciate the bill’s additions to the conscience protections which hospitals and health care providers already have under the Weldon Amendment. We look forward to working with you to ensure access to life-affirming health care coverage for all.”

Sister, thank you for voicing support of H.R. 358.  I hope it lasts and isn't (ahem!) "reconsidered".  What will really affirm life and protection for all vulnerable people is if you and CHA lobby for passage of H.R. 2 in the U.S. Senate.  Of course it would be nice if the USCCB got on board with that, too.
