We bear the responsibility

To the editor:

Because of the Catholic vote more babies are dying via abortion.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops so noted when they said that Obama’s "health bill" will provide federal money for the first time in U.S. history".

However as noted by Senator Robert Casey (Pa.) this health bill would not have passed without the support of Sister Carol Keehan, President of the Catholic Health Association. A photo op and a pen was her reward.

In a similar vein, Notre Dame University had previously honored the President despite his anti-life record.

Accepting the name Catholic should require adherence to church teaching. We need to hear that from the pulpit more often.
