Letter to Editor (Andrea Burman, Northridge) from The Tidings, LA Archdiocese/ under Cardinal Mahoney:
"If the Archdiocese would speak as openly and energetically on the issue of parental notification for teen abortions as it does for illegal immigration, the world would be a much better place.
"But instead, in the midst of archdiocesan officials and clergy speaking on behalf of illegal immigrants, parishes were sent a letter from the archdiocese forbidding the gathering of signature for the ballot initiative regarding parental notification, citing it as a political issue.
"Parental notification, like illegal immigration, is more than mrere politics. Until the leadership of the archdiocese speaks out on behalf of the unborn as it has on behalf of illegal immigrants, Catholics will continue to abort at the same rate as the rest of the populace."
I had intended to post this under Religion ...?
Illegal immigration rights isn't a political issue, while the rights of the unborn isn't a morality issue?
Mahoney, I must say, is a good example of "By their fruits you shall know them."
What good is it to support immigration reform if you will not support the right for future immigrants to be born?
