CWN Editor's Note: Two Catholic women religious in Kansas have voiced their opposition to a proposed constitutional amendment that would eliminate the legal right to abortion.

Ursuline Sisters Angela Fitzpatrick and Michele Morek wrote, in a letter published by the Kansas City Star, that the amendment would “impose religious beliefs on all Kansans.” They urged a vote against the pro-life proposal.

    To deny the natural law is to deny the basis for rational order in a human society. In the absence of the natural law there can be only caprice, such as is seen in every totalitarian slave state. Imposition of religious beliefs? The prohibitions against murder, perjury, rape, etc. are religious beliefs. Are we to purge these from secular law because they find conformity in secular ethics? In the cited article the nuns pose red herrings by confusing abortion with lifesaving medical procedures.

    Well, there's two nuns that should literally have their butts kicked out of the Order. Where in the world is the moral formation of these people?!
