An ad printed in the _Austin-American Statesman_:
Where to start with their “reasoning”? First, as “Catholics,” they should know that bodies are not separate from souls, and therefore are not objects to be “owned.” Then they should realize that their bodies are not “their own” but the Lord’s. Third, what about the baby’s rights?
What does abortion have to do with “medical coverage” and “proper care”?
“I do not want someone telling me that I may or may not have children.”
Problem: once an abortion is being considered, you already have a child. You’re just choosing whether to kill him or her, so why not wait till after the kid’s born? Why do a few inches make the difference in whether a child has rights?
“I believe that no politician or pope has any business controlling . . . . ”
As soon as those words come out of your mouth, as far as the “Pope” part, you’re not a Catholic anymore.
“I am prochoice because I don’t believe that government or someone else’s religion. . . . ”
So, in other words, you’re admitting that Catholicism is someone else’s religion.
