Some have described the Bishops entry into the abortion debate as being “too little, too late.” The recent insert by the USCCB on trying to stop abortion from derailing the health care bill was mandated for all parishes, but not used by many is the latest effort of the USCCB in this regards.
While it is true that for decades the bishops as a whole were silent or extremely ineffective in this debate we must remember it is never too late to do what is right. I certainly welcome the latest efforts even if I don’t want any form of Federal government supported health care. Speaking out about the Federal abortion coverage is being effective which is why the Presidents Press Secretary (himself a Catholic) has taken swipes at the Bishops.
Now Murder Incorporated (a.k.a. Planned Parenthood) CEO’s Cecile Richard is being “frightened” by the Bishop’s actions. Yes, plunging forceps into children is not scary, speaking against it is.
