It is a falsehood to say either that 52% of American Catholic voters voted for partial birth abortion, or that the Catholic Church is paying for them.

I assume you are extrapolating from the vote for Obama, in which self-identified Catholics of all races voted in aggregate exactly like the overall U.S. vote of all races (54% Obama, 46% McCain), and white Catholics who go to Mass weekly voted exactly like white Evangelicals: 26% Obama, 74% McCain, according to a Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life analysis.

Likewise the Catholic Church is not "paying for partial birth abortions." The CCHD -- scandalously --- paid $7+ million over the last 10 years to ACORN, but ACORN doesn't do partial-birth abortions, or abortions of any kind. They do Alinsky-style organizing, which is aggravating enough, and they did what they could to gin up voters -- drunk and sober, living and dead --- for Obama, but Planned Parenthood they are not.

So your hyperbole is overheated, ill-targeted, and offensive. Why do you say such things?

You don’t really have to ask, do you?

That is Obama’s position on abortion.

52% of Catholics voted for him.

There should have been 0% Catholics voting for him, in my opinion.
