Prominent Jesuit Priest Says Good Catholics Can Be Pro-Choice
Thomas D. Williams Ph.D. | Breitbart News – Catholics can support a woman’s right to kill her unborn child in good conscience declared Jesuit Father Pat Conroy in an interview published Wednesday in the Washington Post.
Father Conroy, who served for a decade as chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives, drew a distinction between being pro-abortion and pro-choice, insisting that “a pro-choice Democrat isn’t a pro-abortion person,” and it is an error to judge any pro-choice Democrat “as pro-abortion.”
“I want to know the American who thinks the government should take away their choice in any area of their life — any area of their life,” the priest stated in reference to women. “It’s an American value that each one of us can choose where our life is going. That happens to be a Catholic value, too.”
“Choice is a highly American value and it’s a church value,” he declared.
“A good Catholic in our system could be saying: Given women in our system have this constitutional right, our task as fellow Christians, or as Catholics, is to make it possible for her to optimize her ability to make the choice,” Conroy asserted.
Calling abortion a “tragedy,” the priest said that, nonetheless, in the end, “she is the one to make her choice; we should not make it for her.”
Father Conroy is not the first Jesuit to support pro-choice Democrats. Jesuit Father Thomas Reese, the former editor-in-chief of America magazine, the Jesuit’s flagship publication in the United States, famously wrote in 2018 that “pro-lifers must consider voting for candidates, even pro-choice Democrats, who will reduce the number of abortions by supporting programs that help mothers and their children.”
“Trying to preserve anti-abortion laws or trying to reverse the legalization of abortion is simply not working,” Father Reese contended.
In that essay, Reese further argued against closing Planned Parenthood clinics, insisting that such a move would be “irresponsible and counterproductive.”
Not long after the publication of Reese’s article, Cardinal Timothy Dolan responded forcefully, asserting that Father Reese’s strategy constituted “a capitulation to the abortion culture, and a grave weakening of the powerful pro-life witness.”
“His main assertion — that we give up all efforts to legally protect unborn human life, and work only to reduce the number of abortions — is an unnecessary dichotomy,” Cardinal Dolan wrote. Read the rest here

If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
