    ......it is the duty of catholic politicians to protect life? No. It is the duty of politicians to serve the people who voted for them.
    Nope, it's the duty of all mankind to protect life. It's the duty of all politicians to enforce the Constitution, which would require them to oppose Roe vs. Wade.

    If she claims to be Catholic then she also has a duty to govern ethically in accordance with Catholic tradition.

    If she claims to be Catholic, what is she doing in a Gay Pride parade?

    If that were true, then there would have been no Iraq war, and no death penalty.

    Agreed with the Iraq War, disagree with death penalty. But yes, I get the sentiment.

    And I should care why?

    Source?
    U.S. Constitution. You know that non-existent clause giving the federal government the power to force states to allow abortion?

    So you can't provide a source where it says it is my duty to protect 'life'? Noted. Once again Defensor has no dog in any fight.

    Rofl :

    Roe v. Wade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), is a United States Supreme Court case that resulted in a landmark decision regarding abortion.[1] According to the Roe decision, most laws against abortion in the United States violated a constitutional right to privacy under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The decision overturned all state and federal laws outlawing or restricting abortion that were inconsistent with its holdings. Roe v. Wade is one of the most controversial and politically significant cases in U.S. Supreme Court history. Its lesser-known companion case, Doe v. Bolton, was decided at the same time.[2]

    Wow, you know how to work Wikipedia, bravo.

    Now are you ready to provide that clause from the Constitution that deals with abortion as a federal issue?
