I don't think any Catholic laity can answer. I agree about the slowness and what looks like a political situation by the bishops.
The only way one can view the problem is if one is active in the pro-life movement, which I am. A problem I see is that all denominations are at fault and in most cases if it were not for the Catholic Church there would be no effort at all.
There are 144 churches in the two counties my group works in and the only response we have had in 3 years is from the Catholic Church and two Evangelical churches. We even had clergy who have told us that his/her church was not a "pro-life church". To me that is an abomination and certainly a non-Christ Church posing as a Christian Church.
There is evil in all churches and they should be all condemned.
My Missouri Synod Lutheran Church has a very active Lutherans for Life Chapter. We have sponsored a full-sized pro-life billboard for years. We also help a home for pregnant girls.
