Church will have no part in health care that destroys life, New York archbishop insists

Archbishop Dolan puts words to what I've been thinking. I'm tired of Catholics who say poor people, all people, having health care is a bad thing! But, Archbishop Dolan makes the distinction well - health care is a good thing!!! But, we must be on guard against any program that would also include abortion or other threats to life. Read on...

Phoenix, Ariz., Aug 6, 2009 / 02:52 pm (CNA).- “Health care reform is a good thing,” New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan told CNA on Wednesday during in interview in Phoenix, Arizona. However, if it “leads to the destruction of life, then we say it’s no longer health care at all - it’s unhealthy care and we can’t be part of that.”

Responding to a question about the Catholic Church’s view health care reform, Archbishop Dolan explained to CNA that the Church regards health care reform as a good thing. “The Catholic Church has been saying that for a long time,” he explained, adding that because of our human dignity, “means that one has access to quality affordable first rate health care.”
