The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' recent ruling on "conscience protections" (or better, the lack thereof) in private health plans has caused a lot of concerned chatter in American Catholic circles for the swipe it takes at both the First Amendment and our moral values as a Church.
You know that something pretty serious is up when you read similar reactions from commentators at both the Wall Street Journal and Crisis Magazine. Each of these articles (neither of them too long) are well worth your time.
But if time is short, then just watch this brief clip from my friend, Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, to get the lowdown.
And--whatever you do--call or email your elected representatives in Congress to let them know what you think.
Get informed...and involved!
