I had no idea…
If everything I want [is] in the final bill, I like everything in the bill except you have public funding for abortion, and we had a chance to run our amendment and we lost. OK, I voted my conscience, stayed true to my principles, stayed true to the beliefs of this district, could I vote for healthcare? Yes I still could.
Game over, man.
Is this the position of the Catholic Church?
Not according to Fr. Habiger of Human Life Intl:
It is a scandal that Catholic politicians vote for bills which fund or otherwise advance abortion. They should be named, publicly shamed and admonished so that they can cease their evil and return to God.
To vote for such a candidate is to willfully participate in that candidate’s choices and deeds. It is a sin, and must be repented.
