Pro-lifers in South Dakota defy the political odds and get a ban on abortions passed. The local bishop sees it as the first step in a new socialist agenda.
Bishop Blase J. Cupich of Rapid City said South Dakota citizens and their elected officials “can be justifiably proud of their efforts to restore the rights of the unborn child,” but “a change in law and structures,” he said, “is not sufficient.”
Society must build a culture of life that “begins with the unborn” and also ensures livable wages, education, adequate health care, help for single mothers and “an end to the death penalty,” he said.
... Catholics must join with others to support “a livable wage for workers, assistance for single mothers, adequate health care for families, the education of our youth and an end to the death penalty,” the bishop said.
Undoubtedly, all through the passage of new entitlements and the accompanying taxes to pay for them.
Abortion isn’t just one of many problems we face in this country. It is the systematic state-sanctioned murder of millions of children and the decimation of a generation.
A loophole in the new law
