Abortion Information

For many Catholics, endorsements from the pulpit don't work


Hillary Clinton supports abortion rights. Donald Trump opposes abortion. And that is that.“The right to life is the most important fundamental right, since life is necessary for any of the other rights to matter,’’ Aquila wrote, words some local pastors helpfully reprinted, making it the centerpiece of their weekly message to parishioners. “There are some issues that can legitimately be debated by Christians, such as which policies are more effective in caring for the poor, but the direct killing of innocent human life must be opposed at all times by every follower of Jesus Christ. There are no legitimate exceptions to this teaching.’’Can it possibly be my church’s position that a candidate who talks glibly about sexually assaulting women, who makes fun of the disabled, who belittles the parents of a soldier who died fighting for our country should be our president solely because he now opposes abortion?AdvertisementTrump, who has repeatedly contradicted himself on the abortion issue, is a xenophobe — a thrice-married man who wants to close our borders to Muslims, deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, and encourages Russia to mess with our elections.
