A poll conducted by the Pew Research Center found that 56% of Catholics support Democrat Hillary Clinton while 39% support Republican Donald Trump for the bid to the presidency.
These 56% of American Catholics are gravely violating the Church’s teachings. In 2004 Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now known as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI wrote on this:
The Church teaches that abortion or euthanasia is a grave sin. The Encyclical Letter Evangelium vitae, with reference to judicial decisions or civil laws that authorize or promote abortion or euthanasia, states that there is a “grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. […] In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to ‘take part in a propaganda campaign in favour of such a law or vote for it’” (no. 73). Christians have a “grave obligation of conscience not to cooperate formally in practices which, even if permitted by civil legislation, are contrary to God’s law. Indeed, from the moral standpoint, it is never licit to cooperate formally in evil. […] This cooperation can never be justified either by invoking respect for the freedom of others or by appealing to the fact that civil law permits it or requires it” (no. 74).
What can be taken from this? Any Catholic who votes for a pro-abortion candidate puts his or her soul in peril.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has a record of supporting abortion on demand
- Secretary Clinton has a 100% rating by Pro-choice America
- Secretary Clinton voiced opposition to the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
- Secretary Clinton expressed admiration for eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger
Hillary Clinton is a pro-abortion candidate who will put into place laws and judges who will further cement abortion on demand as the law of the land and YOU my fellow Catholics have a God Given obligation to stop her.
