In a full-page ad in the Tribune on Nov. 17, we noticed that over 100 Catholic and Protestant clergy signed a letter encouraging Gov. Gary Herbert to expand Medicaid. Since then we have noted there have been letters in the public forum from physicians, nurses, social workers, other health care providers, small-business owners and prominent citizens also requesting Herbert to expand Medicaid.
During this time we also noted the LDS Church’s apparent neutrality on this question. How can a church remain neutral on this obviously moral issue? This could be the most important decision Herbert will make as our governor. We hope he can be persuaded to make the right choice.
