I cannot recall an historic precedent for this. The USCCB launched a sudden campaign to rally all Catholics to contact their representatives in an effort to prevent the passage of present health care legislation which funds abortion. (The vote in the House may occur this Wednesday or Thursday.) The campaign provided pulpit "talking points" and a bulletin insert. Unfortunately, by the results of some polling in the blogosphere, word didn't get out to the country's 19,000 parishes. The vast majority neither made any mention of the issue nor provided the bulletin insert.
