I don't intend for this blog to be political, and will rarely, if ever, discuss politics here. (Namely because I have differing political views from nearly all of my friends!) However, this extends far beyond the political and is one of the most distressing things I have seen in a long, long time. This bill is radically anti-life, and the lives of thousands of unborn babies are at stake. One of the things that distresses me most is that this would bill require all hospitals to offer abortions, even Catholic hospitals. Several Catholic bishops have said that if this is enforced, many Catholic hospitals would be forced to close since they won't participate in the murder of babies and the destruction of women's lives. Considering how many Catholic hospitals serve our communities nation-wide, this should be a concern to those who claim to be fighting for the rights of everyday people.
President Obama has vowed to sign this horrifying bill into law when it crosses his desk. He has already decided to permit the use our tax dollars to fund the slaughter of the unborn worldwide. Let's pray he changes his mind about signing this bill into law. Like most Americans, I want very much for this country to be a place where everyone is taken care of. Let's begin with the most vulnerable among us.
