In stunning reversal, CHA president Sister Carol Keehan withdraws support for Obama's

...Obama's HHS 'accommodation'

BIG NEWS: CHA tells HHS “NG on Accommo” UPDATED



heard the sound of E.J. Dionne screaming and ran to the headlines to see what had happened!
Sharpening an election-year confrontation over religious freedom and government health insurance rules, the nation’s Catholic hospitals on Friday rejected President Barack Obama’s compromise for providing birth control coverage to their women employees.

The Catholic Health Association was a key ally in Obama’s health care overhaul, defying opposition from church bishops to help the president win approval in Congress. But the group said Friday it does not believe church-affiliated employers should have to provide birth control as a free preventive service, as the law now requires.
Honestly, at first I thought I must have misread the copy, but Deacon Greg confirmed, it’s for real, quoting:
In a letter to the federal Health and Human Services department, the hospital group said the compromise initially seemed to be “a good first step” but that examination of the details proved disappointing. The plan would be “unduly cumbersome” to carry out and “unlikely to adequately meet the religious liberty concerns” of all its members, the group said.
This is, as the Deac says, “big news.”. If it seems written in benign fashion by the WaPo, and dropped late on a Friday in summer, Rocco Palmo explains why:
Continued- In stunning reversal, CHA president Sister Carol Keehan withdraws support for Obama's HHS 'accommodation'...

Catholic Health Association reverses course on mandate accommodation

05:12 pm | WASHINGTON D.C., Jun 15, 2012 (CNA/EWTN News).- In a call for broader religious exemptions, the Catholic Health Association has backtracked from its initial support for the Obama administration’s compromise on a rule that mandates employer coverage of contraception and sterilization.

I really admire Sister Carol--a smart businesswoman and a shrewd negotiator.

She recognized that she needed to support the Obama Administration to get health care reform passed--because overburdened Catholic hospitals in inner cities and rural areas would go bankrupt--as St. Vincent's in NYC did--without health care reform.

And so, singlehandedly, by giving them the support when they needed it, she might have saved the Catholic hospital system.

Then, mission accomplished and hospitals saved she started advocating for the little bit of fine tuning that would be necessary.

God bless you, Sister Carol! You were there when 45 million uninsured needed you.

I love sister Carol Keehan.

She was on EWTN during the AHC debate, after the secular media misquoted her as supporting a woman's right to choose, which Raymond Arroyo used the misquoted statement in his news broadcast on the World Over.

Sister Carol Keehan, with all due charity and respect, corrected Raymond Arroyo, who accepted her correction.

However, the other guest,(don't remember her name) Arroyo had on, a woman from a pro-life movement, showed only disrespect and remained indignant toward sister.

Yet, Sister Keehan kept her charity and understanding and was an outstanding witness to Christ.

What impressed me also about Sister Keehan, is that not only was she on top of the issues of health-care, but she presented her experience in serving the poor who need health care, where Arroyo and the guest only experience was in political talking points.

A closer look at Sr. Carol Keehan's turnabout...

The news broke Friday that Sr. Carol Keehan of the Catholic Healthcare Association (CHA) has broken with the Obama administration's plan to force abortion drugs and contraception on religious institutions such as Catholic hospitals and universities that offer medical insurance.

The dramatic move was announced in a 5-page letter (PDF here) signed by Keehan and two CHA board members.

From the article:

It is unfortunate that this happened on a Friday, when the Eye of Mordorthe Media was turned elsewhere.

Love the phrase. I guess I'm not the only one who has noticed that all news that may reflect negatively on Obama is purposely released on Friday or particularly on a Holiday weekend (when not as many people will see it in the media and it won't be as damaging). It's happened so often that it's gotten funny.

I don't think that Keehan's change of heart (or position) reflects on Obama at all.

I think that some will see it as a result of hierarchical pressure.

Others will see it as her position all along, a position she bided her time announcing until the beloved hospital system she led had its financial continuation protected.

I see it as a business decision by a smart businesswoman. She supported health care to save the hospital system; and now she's siding with the bishops to keep the health care system she saved "Catholic."
