Senator Ben Nelson Puts U.S. Bishops' Interests Ahead of Americans' Healthcare Needs
Date:12/7/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jon O'Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, issued the following statement:

"Today, Senator Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) put the policy priorities of the U.S. Catholic bishops before the needs of women nationwide. Originally, Senator Nelson maintained that the abortion language in the healthcare bill was not a make-or-break factor in his vote. This week, however, he hardened his stance on the abortion language, stating that he would not vote for a healthcare bill unless the restrictions on insurance coverage for abortions are tightened. This shift can be attributed, at least in part, to the lobbying efforts of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Last Friday, Nelson said that he would not present his amendment to the healthcare bill until the bishops had more time to review the language severely restricting the access for abortion coverage.

"Once again, the Catholic bishops are using their political clout and false claims that they represent U.S. Catholics to influence politicians and their votes on healthcare reform.

"We know that the U.S. bishops aim to restrict healthcare for women by refusing access to abortion, in vitro fertilization, contraception and embryonic stem cell research and continuing to disrespect advance medical directives. They do not represent the views of the vast majority of Catholics. In fact, the majority of Catholics do not want their bishops to be involved in this political issue at all.

"Once again, a small group of Catholic bishops have taken the reins of the healthcare debate. The Nelson/Hatch amendment (Amendment #2786) to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (HR 3590) would be a devastating step backwards in providing critical healthcare services to women. Please join us in calling our Senators to defeat this restrictive amendment and to put forth a healthcare plan that is supported by all Americans, not just the U.S. b
