National Catholic Bioethics Center backs campaign against abortion funding in health care

.- In the wake of the U.S. bishop's call for a massive grassroots campaign to remind Congress that health care is only truly health care if it respects every human being's right to life, the National Catholic Bioethics Center has stated its support for the campaign.

The NCBC warned that if the current proposed legislation is passed, “immoral mandates will be imposed if there is no explicit conscience provision.”  They also support the bishops' position which declares that no taxpayers should be required to fund abortions and that no government authority should mandate the availability or performance of such immoral procedures.

In their message of support for the bishops' campaign, the NCBC agreed that the voters' obligation was to make Congress's first priority the inclusion of pro-life language and conscience protections into the health care reforms.

However, they also noted that if such language and provisions were not included in the bill when it came to vote, it must be defeated, thus ensuring that the evil of abortion not be introduced in the sheep's clothing of health care reform.
