[efoods]Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D.-Md.) said yesterday it would be “morally wrong” for members of Congress to vote against the health care bill.
CNSNews.com asked Mikulski: “Is it morally right to take tax money from pro-life Americans and give it to health insurance plans that cover abortion?”
Mikulski said: “I think it’s morally wrong to vote against health care, because if you really are pro-life–or as Richard Rick Warren says, “whole-life”–then universal access to health care that would guarantee maternity health, sound wonderful deliveries for children, and so on, I think that’s what we want to do. I believe voting for universal access, ending the punitive practices of insurance companies, particularly their discrimination against women, is morally wrong.”
