New York bishops urge voters to choose life
Catholic World News - October 19, 2010
The bishops of New York have issued an election-year statement urging Catholic voters to put moral principles ahead of selfish interests in choosing political candidates.
The bishops’ statement advises Catholics to consider a number of issues, including how candidates’ policies would affect the poor. However the statement makes it clear that not all issues carry equal moral weight. “The inalienable right to life of every innocent human person outweighs other concerns where Catholics may use prudential judgment, such as how best to meet the needs of the poor or to increase access to health care for all,” they say.
