Did anybody representing you in any way get a private meeting?
<snip>
Officials from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said Monday that their intention was to retain existing restrictions on federal financing for abortions, not to expand them. They declined to provide specifics of their lobbying activities. Richard Doerflinger, the group's associate director of the secretariat of pro-life activities, said the conference has begun talking to key senators.

At least four representatives of the group worked the House Friday and Saturday, holding private meetings with lawmakers and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
