Catholic Bishops Offer Principles for Health Care Reform

While our Catholic bishops do support health care reform, they do not support ANY health care reform.

The following four principles are offered as a guide to Catholics when considering whether or not to support any proposed government health care reform initiatives:

1. a truly universal health policy with respect for human life and dignity;

2. access for all with a special concern for the poor and inclusion of legal immigrants;

3. pursuing the common good and preserving pluralism, including freedom of conscience and variety of options; and

4. costs and applying them equitably across the spectrum of payers.
