About Author

CatholicVote.org is a lay-led movement of committed Catholics who are passionate about living out the truths proclaimed by Christ and His Church in the modern world. We are joined in this mission by many individuals of other faith traditions (and no faith tradition) because the common good we seek is universal to all men and women of goodwill. As patriotic Americans, we believe that life, faith, and freedom are precious rights, and that the family is the foundational unit of society.

  1. So long as CV is #nevertrump, they are hypocrites about caring about SCOTUS or any other issue that directly affects Catholics.

    You are the sort of Catholics that pushed the Kennedy’s, Kerry’s, Biden, Pelosi and other faux Catholics and progressives on us.

    Hows this:#neverCV?

  2. Lets face the facts! There were 42 abortion clinics in Texas. Since this campaign there are now 19. If SCOTUS deemed the law constitutional where would that lead us? Many say ZERO clinics because they could not afford the requirements to upgrade to surgical outpatient level of equipment. That is the real target of the ultra right, not protection of women.

    • States regulate business all the time.

      Liquor stores, gun shops, you name it.

      Is there a minimum number of abortion clinics a state SHOULD have, if 19 is too few?

      • I certainly would not want to return to the old “BACK ALLEYS”! Your question on how many clinics are enough should be asked of the ultra-right. My feeling is they would say NONE!

    • When you go to have your abortion, Morgan, where do you want to go; to a clinic with a licensed physician and nurses upholding the standards of the industry, or, to Dr, Gosnell’s house of horrors?

  3. The Pro-Life movement does NOT need to be deceptive or tell lies in order to change hearts, change minds, and change laws. So many state laws restricting access to abortion are based on lies and deception. That will always backfire. We need to stop this. It will only continue to hurt the Pro-Life cause.

    • If a Gosnell-like abortuary is permitted by the state to operate, who is at fault (legally culpable)?

      The state, not the Feds.

      The state has the right, the obligation, to regulate all public services and businesses.

      This is also true of illegal immigrants being snuck into their borders by the Feds under the cover of night.

    Should similar physical requirements be in place for colonoscopies? More fatalities occur with that procedure than abortions – yet they are performed in outpatient centers.

    In addition, admitting privileges for many hospitals are often only given to those physicians that provide a minimum numbers of inpatients to the hospital. Abortion procedures seldom if ever requires hospitalization…so you see the conundrum. This is an effort to limit abortions, period. A more forthcoming, honest approach should be waged by the pro-life side.

    As long as your politics revolves around one issue only, you can not win over the American people to your cause. when you show no concern for the less fortunate. When you elect politicians who care nothing about children after they are born, you can can not even persuade me that you are followers of Christ.
