No good Catholic can be pro-choice

In a News article on State Sen. Timothy Kennedy’s political career and acceptance of abortion, he said he made the right “choice.” In the world today, there is a culture of death in the acceptance of abortion. It is very challenging and difficult to be a Catholic in the political arena. There are laws that are in opposition to Catholic doctrine and values. The church has a commitment to life from conception to death.

Kennedy made his decision based on his “soul searching, thinking and prayer.” I believe his sincerity, but there is no degree of rationalization that can make abortion acceptable. Being a Catholic and defending abortion are not aligned. He will remain an acceptable candidate because of his stance. However, he will have to live with his “choice.”
