The Vatican vs. Gertrude Stein (Part XVII)

THE VATICAN: You may not vote for any candidate who supports abortion rights. A candidate for office who supports abortion rights has disqualified himself as a person that you can vote for. If a political candidate supported abortion, it would not be morally permissible for you to vote for that person. This is because, in voting for such a person, you would become an accomplice in the moral evil at issue. If the candidate about whom you have strong feelings or opinions is pro-abortion, then your feelings and opinions need to be corrected by your correctly informed conscience. The Democratic Party once was the party that helped our immigrant parents and grandparents better integrate and prosper in American society. But it is not the same anymore. At this point the Democratic Party risks transforming itself definitely into a "party of death" for its decisions on bioethical issues. The church must always be very clear on this point.

GERTRUDE STEIN: There is no pope.
