These results clearly demonstrate Catholic opposition to medical cooperation with the evil of abortion. Not. "Remote, passive, and material" are adjectives intended to excuse from obligation. With statistics like these, does anyone foresee a morally-neutral vaccine anywhere on the horizon? A country that can tolerate a pro-abortion Administration is a country not serious about Catholic morality. The Covid panic and coercion stand alongside sexual sins as further evidence of Catholic decline.
