Time Magazine Blasted, Accuses Bishops of Promoting Pro-Abortion Health Care

Time magazine is coming under fire for a new article from staff writer Amy Sullivan that makes the wild accusation that the nation’s Catholic bishops allowed or supported language in one of the House health care bills that paves the way for government funding of abortions. As Sullivan tells the story, the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops is guilty of an “inconsistent approach to the issue” of abortion which “created confusion that has hampered Democratic attempts to accommodate their concerns.” The Time staff writer contends a letter from Cardinal Rigali on behalf of the bishops in July tells Congress to oppose “direct funding of abortion” in the health care bill.
