WASHINGTON, June 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from American Life League president Judie Brown regarding Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley's announcement that archdiocese-affiliated Caritas Christi Healthcare has withdrawn ownership of CeltiCare Health Plan. The announcement comes only two days after A.L.L. announced it would launch an investigation into the scandal.

"Praise God! After months of tireless effort from American Life League and pro-life heroes in Boston and around the country to expose a potential scandal only days away from becoming a tragic betrayal of Catholicism's unwavering commitment to the dignity of the human person, Cardinal Sean O'Malley has heard our voices and will end the joint venture with abortion-providing Centene Corp!
We profoundly thank Cardinal O'Malley for his courage, leadership and pastoral concern for the health and well-being of those youngest members of his archdiocese. He has set a beautiful example of dedication and charity for those poorest of the poor - the preborn.
Cardinal O'Malley has answered our call and beat the clock as the minutes ticked away until the July 1 launch of the new CeltiCare Health Plan and the Catholic Church's participation in the intrinsic evil of abortion.

This is good news indeed! For a while there I could almost hear the cries of glee by those who hate the Church, waiting in joyfull anticipation for such a venture to come to fruition. I’m glad the Cardinal came to his senses.
I thought you two might be interested in this.
Thanks, I’ll find the other posting of it and link it.
One for the O'Malley cat!
I ran a search before posting this article and for some reason it didn’t come up.
don’t worry. It’s happened to me too. Yours is posted in the news — the other one is posted in Religion, so they are both OK.
