Obamaís Friday order to Catholic hospitals: Shut up, commit abortions or Iíll shut you down
The Collins Report ^ | March 2, 2009 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 03/02/2009 5:53:22 AM PST by jmaroneps37

The underhanded Obama administration has quietly moved to rescind the “conscience clause” found in agreements between the federal government and Catholic hospitals.

This “conscience clause” has always protected practitioners from being forced to commit abortions in violation of their consciences. Its removal means Catholic hospitals will be forced to choose between federal funds for committing abortions and closing down to maintain a clear conscience.

Phonies with egg on their faces

Nevertheless, phony “Catholic” judas goats like Douglas Kmiec are still beating their chests with pride at having delivered 52% of the Catholic vote to the abortion team last fall.

In January Kmiec smugly wrote “The scurrilous remarks of conservative bloggers missed the point, which was that I and millions of others who voted for Obama did so not despite our Catholic faith but because of it.”

As a proud “conservative blogger” I have to ask this vile man how voting for a monster who could allow miracle abortion surviving infants to die unattended on a cold steel table in a broom closet is Catholic faith.

Reminding us why print media is dying, two weeks ago Time’s Amy Sullivan instructed us “confused Catholics”, that FOCA does not even exist. Insisting it will not be considered, she gently explains FOCA is merely a myth imagined by our Bishops which will not be voted on in Congress so it can’t threaten the sanctity of life.

Perhaps Sullivan could discern a comforting difference between being sent to a “work camp” rather than a “concentration camp” but her logic escapes me.

The truth may be Obama doesn’t sign anything named FOCA, but whether it’s called FOCA or the Sunshine and Applesauce law, he’ll sign a law extorting Catholic hospitals into committing abortions thereby killing Catholic hospitals.

Obama’s sneaky order proves both of these phonies wrong.

Comrade Obama thinks all of us are as stupid as the dopes that voted for him. The storm is coming and he will be surprised at the powerful blow back it brings.

If I was a Catholic hospital director I would announce that I would not take the money. And, then announce the closing date.

Catholic hospitals should simply quit accepting federal money.

While I do not agree with any of Obama's rules, I do believe that this type of thing should be a teaching moment for entities which accept federal funds but have disagreements with the strings attached to those funds. Find a way to cut the cord.

Civil disobedience, folks.

Everything the 60’s radicals used to get us here, we'll need to use to take us back to what our Founding Fathers created.

They can’t. Every hospital in the US receives some kind of federal money.

There is one bishop who has said that he will close down, and there are others who have said they will go to jail, I hope they are serious.

so the Catholic hospitals will refuse federal funds...
the Catholic schools have not only survived but prospered for decades without federal funding...

and without federal funding, the hospitals should quit giving medical care to illegal aliens and others showing up at the emergency rooms with non-emergency medical issues...

next...

How could he do this during Lent, our most holy month? Catholics will be rioting in the street.

Oh wait, we aren’t Muslims.

It isn’t that the government supports them with money, it is that the government supports poor people with Medicaid and then there is Medicare for retirees, all considered government money. So if they can’t accept those they might as well close because they’d just have to become expensive private hospitals that couldn’t help the people they were created to help.

I hear you - there comes a time when one must stand on principle. And, this is such a time.

I sense quite a few doctors easing into early retirement over this issue (not to mention the national health care boondoggle).

Don’t you just love the way leftists respond when their plans are exposed?

“Oh, that law/idea/agenda doesn’t even exist, you’re just making stuff up.”

Libs, this is YOU:
John 8:44
You belong to your father the devil, and you want to do what he wants. He was a murderer from the beginning and was against the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he shows what he is really like, because he is a liar and the father of lies
