Members of the House of Representatives have introduced legislation to fix the abortion funding provisions of the recently passed health care law. It would also protect the consciences of health care workers that are currently not protected enough.
This is one of many efforts that will continue to take place, both before and after November’s elections, to bring the law more in line with the attitudes of the public about abortion funding.
Even if pro-life measures cannot pass a particular Congress, it’s crucial that they be debated and that we the people communicate with our legislators about such measures. Both those who are pro-life and those who are not need to hear from us. We don’t have to wait for special campaigns. Let’s make sure our families, groups, and parishes are constantly communicating with Congress.
