More than 7,000 Roman Catholic nuns have signed a letter urging senators to vote "no" on the Republican health care bill, or any bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut Medicaid. The letter calls this bill "the most harmful legislation to American families in our lifetime." It also states: "The mission of Catholic sisters has always been to serve our nation's most vulnerable people. As such, we are united in opposition to the current Republican health care proposals . . . [and we] stand by our belief that health is a universal right."
