Pro-Life Issues and Action

October-November 2004

St. Thomas Aquinas taught that man's highest good has to do with reason, not passions. Organizations and people who are endorsing Bush-Cheney do so without reason themselves, and appeal only to passions in others.

There is no reason behind these appeals. We know objectively that Bush-Cheney policies have killed our own people and others while conducting a war built upon lies and unchecked power. This war, and their failure to protect the environment, our families, children, and the poor, prove their lack of concern for life. They appoint as judges people guilty of serious wrongdoing, and they profess "pro-life," solely to appeal to the passions of some Catholics and others. They disregard the fact that all lives are inviolable.

The Catechism teaches that conscience is a judgment of reason whereby the human person recognizes the moral quality of a concrete act. The present leadership exhibits a dead or hardened conscience, without regard for moral quality.

Most Catholics agree with the majority of John Kerry's positions, and know that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger cites this as proper reason to vote for a candidate.

Unlike the Bush-Cheney religious base -- the Pat Robertsons, Jerry Falwells, and Sun Myung Moons of this world -- Catholics do not separate conscience from the moral quality of a concrete act. By turning a blind eye to the whole effect of endorsing Bush-Cheney, MCCL and others deaden the Faith.

John Kerry will bring hope of re-opening the system and providing social and financial support for those faced with a life decision. The Kerry-Edwards platform includes extending affordable, high-quality medical coverage to 95 percent of Americans, including every child. Their policies speak to a renewed respect for life and reason in our nation and the world affected by our actions.

John Kerry is anti-abortion.

A vote for John Kerry, himself a Catholic, is a reasoned and moral act, sanctifying life and dignifying ourselves as individuals.
