CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York has rejected a suggestion by Father Thomas Reese, SJ, that Catholics should end their campaign to stop legal abortion. Cardinal Dolan, the chairman of the US bishops’ pro-life committee, counseled against “a capitulation to the abortion culture.” He remarked: “Reese’s strategy reminds me of those in the mid-19th century who proposed amelioration as a way to reduce slavery in our country.”
