'Abortion Compromise' Does Not Address Core Problem In Senate Health Bill, Says Cardinal DiNardo, Bishops' Pro-Life Chair

'Compromise' would make citizens pay for others' abortions

Senate should mirror House of Representative's Hyde amendment language

Bill doesn't meet goals of affordability, fairness to legal immigrants, protection of life
