U.S. Bishops wary of abortion legislation

The U.S. Catholic Bishops aren't going to allow the passage of the Freedom of Choice Act lying down. From the Washington Post article:
The nation's Catholic bishops Tuesday approved a statement declaring that if the Democratic-controlled Congress and the incoming Obama administration enact proposed abortion rights legislation, they would see it as an attack on the church.

The statement, to be formally issued Wednesday by Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, assails the proposed Freedom of Choice Act, which would remove most state and federal restrictions on abortion.

The Boston Globe article on the same meeting notes that an article by Cardinal Francis George should be on the the U.S. Bishops' website today.
