Bishops’ opposition to abortion endangers access to healthcare



November 18, 2019 - 10:42 AM

The bishops of Kansas’ four Catholic dioceses announced last week they would not support the expansion of Medicaid unless the Kansas Constitution were amended to ban abortion. 

The respective bishops of the dioceses in Dodge City, Salina, Wichita and Kansas City issued a statement saying they are “deeply troubled” that services covered by Medicaid include contraception, sterilization and drugs that may terminate an early pregnancy.

Medicaid, the bishops charge, is the federal government “coercing people to violate their consciences and religious teachings.”
