It's really sad to see prominent Catholics ignore the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and support and/or encourage abortion. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is quite clear in its position on the issue, as well as its importance in Catholic teaching. Life begins at conception, and must be respected and cherished. Period.
This clear-cut position, not shared by the United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church, or Presbyterian Church, is spelled out in the Catechism from 2270 to 2275. There is no wishy-washy, politically correct, gutless explanation for not taking a firm stand against killing the unborn in any Catholic teaching, which makes the existence of catholics like Vice President Joe Biden so puzzling.
President Obama has seen fit to fill his cabinet with several pseudo-catholics, all of whom share his draconian views on killing unborn children. This dangerous precedent has brought the abortion issue to the forefront of the upcoming midterm election and is expected to sway voters, many of whom have come down on the pro-life side as of late. And this makes VP Joe Biden's latest grab for the headlines so puzzling: promising the African nation of Kenya that "money will flow" if their pro-abortion constitution passes. Is this really the image our country wishes to export to the rest of the world? Killing the innocent unborn? Sounds like more ammunition for Muslim extremists.
