Center for Moral Clarity: Unexpected Victory

by R. Burge

In an email dispatch by the CMC they acknowledge the unlikely victory that occurred over the weekend in the fight for health care reform. The Stupak amendment was passed in the House on Saturday. “As a result, the House version of this important bill now prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion, and bans any requirement that a government-approved health-benefit plan includes coverage for abortion.”

They also tout the victory in Maine on the issue of same sex marriage. The CMC believes that Question 1 in Maine was more important to the fight for marriage than Prop. 8 in California.

Additionally the CMC fights back against being labeled part of the Religious Right. “CMC has often been mis-labeled as a “Religious Right” organization. That is somewhat understandable because on the most prominent social issue of our time, the sanctity of human life and the definition of marriage, Republicans and other conservatives tend to agree with us. But we reject the phony labels of “religious right” and “religious left” because our calling is simply to advocate for God’s truth in the public square.”

Finally, the CMC discusses the recent resignation of Abby Johnson from Planned Parenthood after having personal differences with the organization that could not be overlooked.
