The Interfaith Alliance of Pennsylvania, seeking to reflect on our common teachings of our faith traditions, is committed to a moral and just society for all people. We are morally against any health care system that does not take care of all people of the United States. Our faiths teach us to help our neighbors, even those we might not consider as neighbors. Our faiths teach us to care for our widows and orphans and to care for those in need especially those who are on the margins of society; the poor and disadvantaged. This includes those with mental illnesses that depend on their health insurance to cover their needed medications and therapies. This includes those who are too poor to purchase health insurance policies at current prices. This includes all people who work for small business that can't afford to provide health coverage to employees. We believe that health care that does not care for all its people is immoral and against all principles of a just society.
