CWN Editor's Note: Reacting to public protests, the Boston archdiocese has reversed a policy that barred pro-life activists from collecting signatures on church property for a measure that seeks an end to public funding of abortion. The archdiocese announced that pastors would be free to make their own decisions on allowing signature-gathering, provided that the cause “must be in accordance with the teachings of the Church.”
