I also really appreciate her post from today:
A group of nuns just released a letter urging Congress to support Obamacare. A story in the Boston Globe this morning said they represent 59,000 American nuns.Do go and read the whole thing; also read Sister's second post, More on the nuns, which quotes the USCCB's Sr. Marianne Walsh, who is setting the record straight on the number of nuns actually represented by the more liberal wing which came out, in defiance of the bishops, to agitate for the health care plan despite its present funding of abortion.
Wrong. They don't represent me.
Obamacare would be a universal nightmare.
1) It would greatly expand abortion funding. That means more abortions. Whatever you subsidize, you get more of. For unborn babies, Obamacare is DEAD WRONG.
2) It would be as efficient as other government entities. Think the post office. Think about your local DMV. (No offense to the people who work there; I just mean the whole system is inefficient.) Remember the story that came out a few months ago about NASA? That it lost pictures of the moon landing, one of the most historic events of our age? If they can't even keep track of that, what do you think would happen to your medical records?
3) It would drive doctors out of the profession and reduce access to care.(...)
So while a small group of liberal nuns is shouting for Nanci Pelosi to "Deem on!" and declare the health care bill passed by dictatorial fiat, Sister Lorraine is reminding us that real nuns don't support the funding of abortion, not in so-called "health care" nor anywhere else.
Real nuns are pro-life. No compromises, no exceptions.
