View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 - Taxpayer-funded+Abortions

Remember when President Obama said that under health care reform abortions would not be covered? Pro-lifers doubted his word, and sure enough, as some of the health care measures were about to begin using federal monies, some did cover abortion (such as in Pennsylvania).

Pro-lifers cried foul, government officials hemmed and hawed, pro-choicers and their fellow travelers said it wasn't true. But then the government clarified what the funding can be used for, basically acknowledging that abortions would have been covered except for the fact pro-lifers caught them. has now corroborated what the pro-lifers had been saying.
