NARAL Catholics

NARAL sides with baby-killers. Wow, that’s harsh — but so is taking an innocent, unborn life that is guilty only of perhaps being inconvenient. The Roman Catholic Church is the strongest advocate in the world for protecting innocent life. To be a faithful Catholic is to be against abortion. Period.

Now you may not believe that a just-conceived fetus is a person made in the image of God. Likewise, there’s no obligation to be Catholic. But you can’t claim to be a faithful Catholic yet at the same time be in favor of unrestricted abortion.

In brief, “NARAL Catholic” has the same meaning as “square circle.” That is, it is without meaning, a contradiction in terms. And yet, consider this article in the Wall Street Journal headlined “NARAL Catholics Line Up for Obama.”

The basic contradiction for Obama’s self-contradictory Catholics is this, from the Journal:

You are the Democratic candidate for president. You want to reach out to Catholics. So what do you do when the majority of the elected officials on your National Catholic Advisory Council have the seal of approval from NARAL Pro-Choice America?This council does indeed include some Catholics whose pro-life credentials are impeccable, including Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar. But let us also stipulate the obvious: Of the 21 senators, congressmen and governors listed on the council’s National Leadership Committee, 17 have a 90%-100% NARAL approval rating. Even Mr. Casey now enjoys a 65% NARAL approval rating.

It’s not as if these NARAL scores are outliers: Sen. Obama himself boasts a 100% NARAL rating, and for good reason. In a speech before Planned Parenthood, he declared that the right to an abortion is at stake in this election, and vowed that he would not yield on appointing judges that would uphold Roe v. Wade.

Mr. Obama is for using tax dollars to fund abortions, and against restrictions on partial-birth abortion. In the Illinois Senate, he voted against legislation protecting a child who was born alive despite an abortion. In sum, if you want to know what Mr. Obama’s policies mean, it’s this: taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

All you should need to know about Obama and abortion is contained in these few words: Sen. Obama himself boasts a 100% NARAL rating.

If you are Catholic, your choice is to ignore Church teaching and doctrine on the sanctity of unborn life, and vote for Obama. Or be faithful, and don’t vote for Obama. Or any other politician who gets a favorable rating from NARAL.



  1. And the alternative choice? Killing tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians because of the actions of a few non-Iraqi extremists?

    There is NO pro-life candidate. Period.

  2. Russ, the first part of your comment is a non sequitur; i.e. unrelated to the content of the post.

    I generally agree there is no pure pro-life candidate. However: McCain will be much, much more likely to appoint pro-life judges at all levels.

    That’s worth something.
