Catholic hospitals, bishops working together

 |  NCR Today

Sr. Carol Keehan, the president and CEO of the Catholic Health Association, has told Catholic News Service that the New York Times got the story wrong when it reported Dec. 26 that her group wasn't in step with the U.S. bishops on the health reform bills now pending in Congress.

Keehan told CNS that her association and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are working together to achieve health reform legislation that does not expand federal funding of abortion.
