The USCCB has strongly supported the need for healthcare reform, while objecting to two problems with the Senate bill now before the House of Representatives with some proposed modifications. A September 16, 2010 press release explains the two key problems with the Senate bill that have led a strongly pro-reform USCCB to object to this bill. They are (1) the remaining abortion funding in the bill and (2) its lack of coverage for many people who will remain without insurance.
The House of Representatives is planning to vote on Sunday. According to news articles of this morning, those who oppose the protections contained in the Stupak amendment say that they are confident, as of today, that they will have the votes to pass the Senate bill together with its remaining avenues for funding abortion. Rep. Bart Stupak has canceled a news conference scheduled for this morning, without a new time set for it. Seven democrats who previously voted pro-life have reportedly switched sides, but it is still not clear what happened. There are also reports that several liberal Democrats, unhappy with Pelosi's negotiations with Stupak, left a meeting with her grim faced last night. See here and here.
If you have not yet voiced your support for the USCCB's position to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on this issue, now is the time to do so.
