Vatican official: don’t politicize life issue
August 28, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: The president of the Pontifical Academy for Life has argued against any tendency to ‘instrumentalize some topic for political ends,” in an apparent response to President Trump’s emphasis on the abortion issue. In an interview with Crux, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia said: “It would do great harm if some topic of bioethics is extracted from its general context and put toward ideological strategies.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

With all due respect to the Archbishop, and high hopes for the clarification of his thought...he needs to speak clearly. Does he mean to say that life issues go beyond politics? Yes, of course. Does he mean to say that the struggle for the lives of pre-born children is not in part a political issue? I hope not, because it surely is. I also suggest that he take a look at the American Solidarity Party, a party that is pro-life for the whole of life. Unequivocally.
