ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There are, indeed, dire consequences to the compromise made by so-called “pro-life politicians” and a rogue Catholic nun to support “a nationalized health care plan that would allow millions of abortions at public expense” (“Stupak’s final retreat,” Comment & Analysis, April 12).

The capitulation of Rep. Bart Stupak, Michigan Democrat, and his band of “pro-life” Democrats who voted for the added health care plan in exchange for $3.8 billion in earmarks for their states mirrors the compromise made by Sister Carol Keehan, president and chief executive of the Catholic Hospital Association (CHA). In defiance of the Catholic bishops’ opposition to the Senate health care bill on the grounds that “it expands federal participation in abortion … and fails to incorporate essential conscience protections for medical providers” who for reasons of faith refuse to participate in the slaughter of a human being in the womb, Sister Keehan actively supported the bill. In exchange for her support - which was instrumental in inducing Mr. Stupak and his friends to vote for Obamacare - the enterprising nun touted the several hundred million dollars supposedly slated for counseling, job training and education for pregnant women.

Like Mr. Stupak, Sister Keehan was at the White House during the final push for the health care bill - a telling circumstance of how the office of the presidency easily can corrupt even those who initially have honorable goals but accede in the end to the Marxist idiom that the end justifies the means regardless of consequences.

Unfortunately, with the passage of this monstrous health care law, the indiscriminate slaughter of innocents unborn and newborn has begun at the helm of the most anti-life president America has ever known.

The deceit, bribery, coercion and illegality that characterized the environment in which Obamacare was passed will prove to be the Obama administration’s undoing. In the end, the people’s voice will be heard, demanding the repeal of the law in order to preserve our viability as a financially sound country and our age-old identity as a Judeo-Christian nation which, by the grace of one true God, still abhors the killing of innocents, born and unborn.
