Catholics United speaks out on abortion + healthcare

A few years ago, I interviewed sometimes-Portlander Chris Korzen about his book, A Nation For All: How the Catholic Vision of the Common Good Can Save America From the Politics of Division (Jossey-Bass), and organization for which he serves as executive director, Catholics United. 

That  organization is taking a high-profile stand in support of members of Congress (specifically, pro-life Dems) who voted for health-care reform and are now taking heat from anti-abortion activists. There's been a lot of back-and-forth about what the health-care reform bill says about federal funding of abortions. 

Catholics United is focusing their efforts (and $500,000) to "educate constituents of John Boccieri (OH-16), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03), Steve Driehaus (OH-01), and Tom Perriello (VA-05)."
