We must keep fighting to protect the unborn
In 1928, 98 percent of Catholic voters voted for Democrat Al Smith for president, believing that his values in standing up for the powerless and voiceless best reflected their values.
This year, 55 percent of churchgoing Catholic voters – recognizing that the Republican ticket’s stance on standing up for the most powerless and voiceless of all, unborn babies, was more in accord with Catholic teaching – voted for the Republican ticket. It is my hope that in future elections, the Catholic Church will continue to provide even more leadership on this important issue so that the most powerless and voiceless of all will not be ignored.
