101. You can be a Catholic and personally "pro-life" without IMPOSING those beliefs on others.
Many liberal Catholics believe that morality can NOT be legislated and understand that not everyone is of our faith.

Before my father died, he regretted the fact that he could not find a faith that he could believe in. I told him, "Dad, I pray every day and I know in my heart that you will go to Heaven because you have been so good to others."

Liberal Catholics don't JUDGE others based on their religion but only try to set an example personally, without fanfare.

I hope this helps because it's hard to explain how one can stay Catholic yet endure the patriarchal system that is SO WRONG for many? :shrug:
