Kudos to Cardinal O'Malley!

Right after I sent you the information on O-care's abortion secrecy clause and the bill sponsored by Congressman Chris Smith, this information came about a letter Cardinal Sean has sent to Congress in his capacity as Chair of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities.  The link to the letter is below.  You can see that Cardinal Sean really nails it.

 "H.R. 3279 does not affect the ACA's underlying abortion problem, which is the subject of other legislation we support such as the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 7)," Cardinal O'Malley said. "The new bill addresses only this unprecedented policy of government-enforced secrecy. Health plans will have to report on their coverage of abortion, and on the extra payment they charge to cover abortions.  Only then will Americans be enabled to make an informed choice of a health plan for themselves and their families that does not violate their moral and religious convictions. This should be a point of agreement between lawmakers who consider themselves both 'pro-life' and 'pro-choice.'  Any claim of 'choice' is empty if the law conceals the facts needed to make that choice.  Please co-sponsor H.R. 3279 and help enact it into law."

To send the same message to your Congressman and U S Senators:
