Most British Catholics now back abortion, according to a new census which shows a dramatic shift in Christians social views.
For the first time a majority of Catholics who typically hold to conservative views on issues of life and death agreed the law should allow an abortion if the woman decides . . . she does not wish to have a child.
It comes after Jacob Rees-Mogg, tipped to be a contender for leader of the Conservative Party, explained his staunch opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion by saying he followed the teachings of the Catholic Church.
The 2016 British Social Attitudes survey showed an increase in support for abortion among Catholics rise from 39 per cent when the question was last asked in 2012 in 61 per cent last year. The level of approval is only slightly lower than among those with no religion 70 per cent of who back abortion according to the same survey.

I believe these numbers. Many Christian/Catholic women here in the US support abortion - sadly enough
The world I grew up in is going insane. I was born in 1969 old enough to grow up with the Greatest Generation,cool 70’s as a kid and classic 80’s. I now witness at times an unrecognizable world that is upside down and seemingly selfish,aimless,perverted and astray.
Something tells me you aint Catholic, am I right?
Yes. Agreed. That ww2 “greatest generation” was in charge of the workplace when I began earning a living. For the most part, they were honest and then —— their eventual replacements were almost all crooked liars And bigots. The WW2 crowd was far far more decent and ethical. Things really “went to hell” in about the mid to late 70’s or so
Shouldn't this thread be in the Religion forum then instead of General/Chat?
Hence...no caucus thread protection.
