U.S. hearing probes Obama admin decision to deny bishops grant over abortion
Friday, December 2, 2011 - By Life Site News

A Congressional watchdog committee is investigating whether the Obama administration denied millions of dollars in grant money to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops because of its religious objections to abortion.  The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Congressman Darrell Issa, held a two-hour hearing on the issue Thursday morning.  Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle, who sits on the committee, told LifeSiteNews.com that Obama administration political appointees “changed the rules in the middle of the game” and ignored “objective criteria” to deny federal funds to any group that refuses to condone “abortion, contraception, or sterilization.”
