“Why Won’t Candidates Run on This Life Issue?”

Well, I suppose I should start by disclaimering that I am not a canon lawyer, and this is not Official Catholic Advice.  But, hey, at least the issue I’m going to talk about is non-partisan.  And that’s the worse part; as the last foreign policy debate showed, callousness to human life, provided it’s that of the enemy (or people living in the same country as the enemy), isn’t even a campaign issue, it’s the new status quo.

Libresco; comments also worth reading, for example the Irish-history one about “a stream of blood dripping from under a closed door.” I will also point you toward this old piece of mine.
