Though, in Fr. Pfleger’s defense, there is no evidence that he believes abortion is ok. He merely believes crimes of race are the greater evil. I’m not saying he is right, but as far as I can tell, there is no evidence he is pro-choice.

if he supports 100% pro-abortion nobama and doesen’t support pro-life McLame, then I would say that he’s pro-abortion as the RCC is clear about pro-life being the higest proportionate reason when voting.
Isn’t he pro-’Bama? Or am I missing something?
How about the fact that Pfleger has spent YEARS inviting the most outspoken pro-abortion advocates into his pulpit - even though the Chicago Archdiocese has a longstanding policy explicitly forbidding the use of Church property, under ANY circumstances, by pro-abortion advocates? His "guset speakers" have included pro-abortion advocates Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Harry Belafonte, none of whom are even Catholic. If he's concerned about "civil rights", would it kill him to have some "guest speakers" in the black community who are active in civil rights, but also support the Catholic church's social values? If he's not pro-abortion, how come ALL of his guest speakers are?
Interesting coincidence, eh?
And most damning, Belafonte used the opportunity to attack President Bush for being pro-life from Pfleger's pulpit in 2003 and denounced the President for endangering a "woman's right to abortion."
What kind of priest would allow that rhetoric at HIS church unless he WAS "okay" with abortion?
Here’s your evidence:
American Life League President Judie Brown told LifeSiteNews that pro-life advocates have seen this problem develop for over five years, beginning when Pfleger invited Al Sharpton, an outspoken proponent of legal abortion, to give the homily in his church. (http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2003/feb/03021105.html)To me, this is code saying that either Cardinal George or the archdiocese as a whole is being blackmailed or is being intimidated by outside forces. The Lavender Mafia is still very strong in Chicago but this could also be political pressure.
"Cardinal George's response to me at that time was that we simply did not understand the complexity of the situation with Pfleger," said Brown. "I think the bottom line is that the Cardinal will do anything he possibly can to avoid conflict in the media and African-American community, many of whom attend Pfleger's church."
