The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has sent bulletin inserts to almost 19,000 parishes across the country in an effort to urge Catholics to prevent health care reform from being derailed by support for abortion funding….

Parishes also were receiving suggested pulpit announcements and petitions in support of this effort….
Bulletin inserts were distributed to dioceses Oct. 29, the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA… unveiled an $894 billion health care reform bill….
The inserts – expected to be placed in parish bulletins in early November – contain information about how Catholics can take specific action by writing, calling, faxing or e-mailing members of Congress to let them know health care reform must explicitly ban abortion coverage….
The letter accompanied the bulletin inserts urging the bishops to promote the campaign in their dioceses.
It was signed by Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president; Cardinal Justin Rigali… Bishop John Wester… and Bishop William Murphy….

Cecile didn’t take this news well, not unlike Dracula when sprinkled with holy water. Click to enlarge….
