To save babies from being aborted, repeal the Seamy Garment
That remains so to this day, even though the Cardinal later did admit that aborting millions of babies should be preeminent.
The news that in two recent surveys pro-abortion Catholics outnumbered pro-life ones shows the success of the Seamy Garment.
The Catholic News Service reports (sorry, I don't have a link) that in a poll by Georgetown U.'s Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, 58% of 1,007 Catholics agreed that "a woman should have the right to choose an abortion."
Also, reports the Catholic News Service, among 8,054 Catholics in a Pew Forum poll, 16% said aborting babies should be legal in all cases and 32% said aborting babies should be legal in most cases. Some 27% of Catholics said aborting babies should be illegal in most cases, and only 18% said aborting babies should be illegal in all cases.
We can thank the Seamy Garment for these disgusting, disgraceful results, along with the decades of silence from Catholic pulpits about aborting babies and along with the U.S. bishops' equivocating Faithful Citizenship "guides."
It looks as if more Catholics than not are planning to vote pro-abortion this year, from the presidency on down. The only way to fix that is for the U.S. bishops, collectively and in their respective dioceses, to speak Catholic truth clearly and unequivocally, once and for all.
The U.S. bishops, and the clergy echoing them in homilies, need to say that aborting babies is the issue and that the Seamy Garment "broad range of issues" option is no option at all.
Otherwise, kiss more babies goodbye, for decades and by the tens of millions.
The Seamy Garment is already stained and drenched with the blood of tens of millions of aborted babies.
All Catholics, please dump the Seamy Garment, repent, and become pro-life!
(No, I don't expect this to happen. But it needs to.)
