NARAL (Pro-Abortion Group) Heralds Election of Pro-Abortion Legislators – Catholic Voters Guide

A quick guide for all Catholics, (or any given denomination that does not support Abortion): In light of Pope Benedict’s warning to Catholic legislatures this past week, following the short meeting with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (As head of the Vatican State, not head of the Catholic Church (a snub in itself) - the Pope noted it was every Catholics duty to uphold life at every stage. The Bishop of Scranton, (Pennsylvania), has taken up Benedicts tone, baring pro-abortion activist from any St. Patrick’s days masses or parades.

With this new tone on Abortion set by the Pope, the following may be a beneficial guide for lay people when considering candidates in 2010 (let alone the “stimulus package”). NARAL’s (pro-Abortion) website offers congratulations to all representatives that either won or held onto a seat in 2008 - those who have worked tirelessly for abortion rights, are noted with an asterisk as being endorsed by NARAL.

Pope Benedict is proving to be stronger on reigning Catholics in on the abortion issue. Pope John Paul spoke out aginst it but was more laid back. While I respected and liked Pope John Paul, Pope Benedict is a breathe of fresh air

Chuck, I agree, also, I found a voters website (Catholic) - that is of interest - Catholic Citizenship.org Apparently, what has, in teh past, stopped Catholic Priests from discussing issues relevant to voters, is a fear of losing tax except status, however, this site, educates Catholics, regarding this matter, apparently, it is perfectly fine for a priest to describe a political reference, however, as long as they do not specifically name a particular candidate. Interesting!

I agree, Pope Benedict is a breath of fresh air!
