Archbishop Naumann: New abortion legislation is “evil, pure, and simple.”


Archbishop Joseph Naumann, USCCB Chairman for Pro-Life Activities, denounced the legislative efforts in New York, Virginia, and other states to promote abortion.

“Abortion has always been built on a lie. Today, the lie is switching from ’abortion is a choice’ to ’abortion is healthcare,’” Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, said.

He said a law recently passed in New York not only legalizes abortion essentially for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy but removes any protection for children born alive after abortion. Similar measures have been proposed in Virginia and several other states—all in the name of woman’s health.

“This legislation is evil, pure and simple,” Naumann said. “And it shocks the conscience to see such evil legislation greeted with raucous cheers and standing ovations.”
