I'm sorry, could you repeat that?

Virgin Mary Invoked by Pro-Abortion Activists -- Friday, July 02, 2004 12:00:00 AM GMT

...Catolicas por el Derecho a Decidir, released a prayer card of the Virgin Mary, with the words "The love of God and of Mary of Guadalupe is greater... For women's lives, safe and legal abortion" superimposed over the image of the Virgin Mary. The back of the card says, "Dear Mary of Guadalupe, we thank you because your love is greater, because you listen to us without judging, because you know our heart and you respect the intimacy of our decisions." ...

At the same press conference, CFFC released polling data that purports to show that Latin American Catholics overwhelmingly accept a broad pro-abortion, pro-contraception agenda. According to the CFFC press release, "Before, Catholics were more afraid of what the bishops and the church were saying-- now they are deciding for themselves. What we see is a more mature society and a more democratic one in which the most important guide is the individual conscience, not the institution of the church...."

So that's the new flavor of dissent. Change is always nice.

Rape is very intimate -- private -- but that doesn't make it right.
