Politicians and Catholic people

To be Catholic is to be pro-life. There is no ambiguity on the topic. In reality there are Catholics who are not pro-life. This is a contradiction in terms. But it happens. Hopefully these people have a conversion experience before the end of their life. We should pray for them.

Bernard Cardinal Law said:
"That is what Catholics are called to: to be unconditionally pro-life. There is no ambiguity in the words of Peter's successor. To be Catholic is to be unconditionally pro-life. To support abortion, to advocate the right to choose an abortion can in no way be considered a catholic option. ..."
We also know that the current Liberal government under Justin Trudeau is a pro-abortion party, First Trudeau forbid pro-life people from becoming members of his party. Now it gets worse when he has pledged $650 million to fund "sexual and reproductive health and rights".

So are Catholics allowed to vote for the Liberals in the next election? No. I'm pretty sure though that there are Catholics who do vote Liberal. But as Catholics we cannot vote for a politician that is for abortion and funds abortion. This would be a very serious matter for a Catholic.

Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi said:
"It is never permissible for a Catholic to vote for a pro-abortion candidate because the candidate is pro-abortion. Such a vote would be formal cooperation in the serious sin of the candidate who, upon being elected, would vote for legislation making possible the taking of innocent human life through procured abortion."
Catholics must be pro-life.
