Bishop Coakley Urges Catholics Not to be Misled

March 19, 2010

On the heels of the Catholic Health Association’s endorsement of health care legislation opposed by the nation’s Catholic bishops, a letter with 55 Catholic signatories claiming to represent 59,000 women religious has been released also in support of the bill.

In response, Bishop Coakley has issued a statement urging Catholics not to be misled.  The bill as it stands remains unacceptable.
