Bishops have been speaking out against universal health care. Some of the Catholic media has been presenting the view that the United Stated Council of Catholic Bishops entirely supports public health care, but this is now being show as false.

Catholic Femina Speaks: I am very happy that this error has been corrected… not all bishops want universal healthcare. It will hurt many people and promote the culture of death. People who read this must understand that all people are entitled to dignity, but that is not an over-reaching statement that contrives to forcibly tax the wealthy to pay for the poor. In other words Catholics are already providing health care through Catholic Charities and other organizations without government interference. Our pro-choice, pro-euthanasia, culture of death government will not promote the dignity of humanity and these bishops know it. They are not promoting the government health care because it is not a means to help people but a ploy to further the Obama agenda.
