Pro-Life Congressmen Introduce Bill to Amend Health Care Legislation

May 3, 2010

Pro-Life members of Congress have introduced legislation that would prevent federal funding of abortion under the new health care reform law recently passed by Congress.  HR 5111, the “Protect Life Act,” would also protect the conscience rights of health care personnel.  The bill would essentially codify the Pro-Life protections that the nation’s Catholic bishops sought to apply to the health care bill during the long debate over that legislation.
