As the COVID-19 pandemic touches nearly every corner of the globe, “there are many ethical considerations around resource allocation and the delivery of care for critically ill patients,” said Mercy Sister Mary Haddad, president and CEO of the Catholic Health Association.
The Catholic Health Association of the United States joined 17 other national organizations urging the Trump administration and Congress to take immediate and coordinated action to address the critical needs of capacity and supply in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Congress was busy in 2019, but the House and Senate were often at cross purposes with each other.
Catholic leaders joined more than 35 other groups that have filed friend-of-the-court briefs urging the Supreme Court to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, known as DACA.
The Trump administration is weighing a plan that uses a different definition of inflation to determine who lives in poverty and who does not.
The plan, floated in the spring, has raised concerns among Catholic advocates for low-income and working families.
