U.S.Roman Catholic Bishops Urge Senate Changes to Draft Health Care Bill/Must Provide Access to All Regardless of Means At All Stages of Life

"In a statement signed by Bishop Frank Dewane,  Chairman of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, the bishops express their concern regarding some points in the legislation they fear will harm those most in need.
The bishops praise some fundamental elements in the  bill but point out that an acceptable health care system must provide access to all, regardless of their means, and at all stages of life. 
They also say such a health care system must protect conscience rights, as well as extend to immigrant families.
The statement calls on the Senate to act to make changes to the draft to protect those persons on the peripheries of the American  health care system."
