Sister Keehan is Destroying Catholic Hospitals

No doubt, Sr. Carol Keehan is running a multi-million dollar boondoggle of Catholic Healthcare (into the ground), got a firm talking to which forced her to reverse her initial and customarily unwavering support for leftist causes and pro-abort politicians like former Sen to South Dakota, Tom Daschle. If you have agents acting consistently against the stated goals and principles of an organization, pretty soon, it will seriously undermine that organization and event destroy it, but that's the idea. Her sole mission must be to preside over the disestablishment of Catholic Hospitals in the United States.

We remember when Archbishop Burke, formerly of St. Louis, took Catholic Hospitals to task just for this reason and shortly after was summoned to Rome for a "promotion" or a kick upstairs.

CHA president Sister Carol Keehan had issued a statement that said, “now that a public health insurance option is no longer on the table” in the Senate’s health care reform bill, the CHA is “increasingly confident” that a compromise formulated by Catholic Democratic Sen. Robert Casey of Pennsylvania “can achieve the objective of no federal funding for abortion.”

Pro-life activists call Casey’s proposal phony. National Right to Life legislative director Douglas Johnson, for example, said the Casey language “apparently would make it the default position for the federal government to subsidize plans that cover abortion on demand, and then permit individual citizens to apply for conscientious objector status.”

A year ago, Keehan defended ill-fated Obama HHS nominee Tom Daschle and his choice for deputy health care director Jeanne Lambrew, both abortion rights supporters.

Most Catholic Americans wrongly assume that Catholic hospitals are dedicated to fighting abortion. In fact, many of the most important people running those hospital systems, and representing them before government, have spent fortunes supporting some of the most powerful pro-abortion politicians in America.
