Bishops blast Catholic governor's role in abortion award ceremony :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

The following are excerpts from the Catholic News Agency article by Benjamin Mann:

  • The Illinois bishops, including Chicago's Cardinal Archbishop Francis E. George and Springfield's Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki, quoted a 1994 statement of Blessed John Paul II in their reaction to Governor Quinn's involvement.
  • The late Pope, they recalled, “asked in his 'Letter to Families,' 'How can one morally accept laws that permit the killing of a human being not yet born, but already alive in the mother's womb?'”
  • “Governor Quinn not only accepts these laws,” the bishops stated, “he promotes them and publicly presents awards to their advocates.”
  • “This approach is irreconcilable with any honest profession of the Catholic faith.”
