Catholic Health Association Condemns Denial of Health Insurance for Children

Congress Called To Do the Right Thing and Override the Veto

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Sister Carol Keehan, DC, president and chief executive officer of the Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA), issued the following statement:

By vetoing legislation to reauthorize the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), the President has just played partisan politics with the lives of ten million children in desperate need of health care coverage. The Catholic Health Association condemns this denial of health insurance for children.

Reauthorizing SCHIP represents a humane and pro-life opportunity: ensuring that millions of children --- born and unborn --- receive the health care they need and deserve. The President's decision stands in the way of this opportunity.

When any child is allowed to go without health care, we as a nation do not meet our moral obligations. One person should not stand in the way of bipartisan compromise or the will of the American people. It is now time for Congress to do what is right for our nation's children and vote to override the President's veto.

The Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA), founded in 1915, supports the Catholic health ministry's pursuit of the strategic directions of mission, ethics, and advocacy. As the nation's largest group of not-for-profit sponsors, systems, and facilities, the ministry is committed to improving the health status of communities and creating quality and compassionate health care that works for everyone.
