Sister Simone Campbell Calls Health Care Bill Pro LifeAs the Blaze reported,Sister Simone Campbell has created her group called NETWORK which is a progressive voice for Catholics. She said that she was “thrilled” Obamacare was upheld and that it was pro-life. Let’s take a look:

On Thursday, in the wake of the Supreme Court‘s decision to validate President Barack Obama’s health care law, Sister Simone Campbell, who is the executive director of NETWORK (“a progressive voice” for Catholics), penned a Washington Post op-ed in which she said she’s “thrilled” that the bill remains on the books.

She also explained that her organization, which was founded 40 years ago by Catholic nuns, has lobbied for more affordable health care for years (she is an organizer of the “Nuns on the Bus” tour). Campbell also took a moment to claim that the law is in line with Biblical teaching.


“Our faith tells us that access to health-care safeguards human life,” she continues. “This law is pro-life and we must do everything possible to preserve and expand its reach.”
