Two deceitful letters were published in the Washington Post on October 25. The first one, by Jon O’Brien of Catholics for Choice, said that “In Catholic theology there is room for the acceptance of policies that favor access to the full range of reproductive health options, including contraception and abortion.” This is a lie. The Catholic Church has always been opposed to both contraception and abortion. But lying is nothing new to this pro-abortion, anti-Catholic group.
Alexia Kelley at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good takes exception with theWashington Post for listing it as a group that contends “Catholic teachings do not forbid voting for a pro-choice politician.” But that is exactly what Kelley’s mission is—to confuse the laity, and the public, about the Church’s teaching on abortion.
It would be so nice if these groups just told the truth.
