USCCB News Organ Celebrates Pro-Abort Labor Secretary

Edit: can it really be that the USCCB is not only completely useless and expensive but evil as well? This catholic flavored public official "sometimes attends Mass" and even has some religious iconography in her office. The Catholic Faith motivates her. Did it motivate her to get a 100% approval rating from NARAL when she was a congressperson?  Here's the blurb from Catholic World Report:
Puff piece on labor secretary omits mention of pro-abortion stances
US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis (CNS)
A news brief on Catholic Culture highlights a recent article by Mark Zimmerman for Catholic News Service, the editorially and financially independent news media division of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The article in question – which will be running in diocesan newspapers all over the country in time for Labor Day – is a puff piece on US Labor Secretary Hilda Solis that focuses on her parents’ inspiring faith and tireless work ethic, as well as how Solis’ Catholic faith “motivates” her.

We get a description of the crucifix and statue of Mary Solis keeps in her office, and are told that she “sometimes attends Masses at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in downtown Washington.” There is also a detailed account of Solis’ many efforts on behalf of the poor, especially migrant workers, during her tenure as a congresswoman from California and then as labor secretary. Solis was the first woman to receive the prestigious John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, “for her work on environmental justice issues,” the article states.
However, this glowing account of a Catholic public servant fails to mention a couple facts about her time in office, including her 100% pro-choice rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America (and a corresponding 0% rating from the National Right to Life Committee).
