62. It's the key to getting Catholics back to the Democratic party

For too long (almost 40 years) Catholics have been told that voting Democratic is a sin because the Dems are pro-Abortion.

Well I don't believe anybody *wants* to have an abortion, certainly not any woman I know.
It's a matter of necessity, usually economic necessity, or possibly another kind.

To me an abortion would be wrong, but if I were in that position I'd really want to decide for myself.
Most Catholics - certainly the Baby Boomers - have been taught that abortion is wrong. (I don't call it murder.)

But many of us, probably most of us, feel that it should be a personal choice, not something dictated by the government. Any woman who needs or wants an abortion has the right to a safe medical procedure. I'm not saying anything new here.

We all have our personal beliefs, but we can't force those beliefs on anyone else.
The GOP believes it has that right, and it doesn't.
