Not directly, but going on about who has voted for "life."
It kind of made me see directly: why don't Catholics just say that as Catholics they don't do abortions. They are free to follow that rule in the good old freedom of religion USA. Why is it necessary that the government have anything to do with, and enforce, this particular religious practice of the Catholics? If you're Catholic, you don't get an aborion when you are pregnant and don't want to keep the child. Nothing stops us from following that rule.
Then let others follow their own rules. If they are comfortable with the practice (and some Christians are) or they belong to another religion or none at all and are comfortable with it, who are the Catholics to insist their way to legislatively be prohibited?
It's as if the Catholics are admitting they need the government to make laws that will force them to comply with their own religious doctrine.
