They say it’s just one of many important issues. And they’re trying
to convince more Catholics to join Obama’s campaign because “he best
reflects Catholic teachings in his platform.”


Somebody doesn’t know their Catholic teachings.

Known as 10,000 Catholics For Obama, the group was
launched early in July following the rise of a “Catholics for Obama
United” Facebook group that now has over 800 members. The group does
not have 10,000 members, but aspires to organize that many and more. A
prominent theme of the group’s Web site has been the idea that Catholic
voters should really not pay attention to Mr. Obama’s strong
pro-abortion platform.

“In our experience, there is a tendency of some Catholics to turn
presidential elections into a single issue referendum on abortion,” the
group said on its Web site. “Indeed, abortion is a grave moral issue of
monumental importance, but we believe it cannot be separated from a
holistic approach in which every human life is respected and dignified.

Right. Abortion cannot be separated from the understanding that every human life is respected and dignified.

Sooo……this holistic approach starts from a tortured logic that redefines the newly created member of the species homo sapiens as something other than human life?
