Joint Statement From Dallas and Fort Worth Bishops

I think this is a very important letter from our bishops that all Catholics, whether from Dallas or Fort Worth or elsewhere, should read. It is very clear in stating our obligations as Catholic voters. This stood out as most important to me...

“To vote for a candidate who supports the intrinsic evil of abortion or ‘abortion rights’ when there is a morally acceptable alternative would be to cooperate in the evil – and, therefore, morally impermissible.”

For the record, Barack Obama supports the intrinsic evil of abortion, "abortion rights". He has voted against human rights for babies born alive after attempted abortions and called babies punishments.

It cannot be more plainly stated.

What's next for the left - mandatory abortion?
St. Padre Pio, Humanae Vitae, and Mandatory Abortion

St. Pio defended the controversial encyclical, praising its “lofty teachings” and “eternal truths.”

An aspect of the document often overlooked today is its grim warning that governments might “impose” contraceptive methods on citizens.

In the light of the Humanae Vitae’s other accurate predictions,
are mandatory birth control and abortion on the horizon for America?
