Cowards in Boston

The first Catholic hospital to capitulate to the Culture of Death has stepped forward. LifeNews has the story:

A St. Louis-based company, Caritas has joined in a bid to provide government-subsidized health insurance in Massachusetts. Caritas Christi, is joining with Centene Corporation in a bid for the government contract that would include coverage for abortion.

In an interview with the Boston Globe, Nancy Turnbull, an associate dean at the Harvard School of Public Health, complained that Caritas doesn't do abortions. As a result, she opposes its bid to provide state-subsidized health insurance through the Commonwealth Care program.

In response, Caritas released a statement last month saying the new venture "will contract with providers, both in and out of the Caritas network, to ensure access to all services required by the authority, including confidential family planning services."

You can't serve two masters. In an interesting effort to do so, Caritas has chosen both Mammon and Molech.

Can and will Cardinal O'Malley try to stop this?
