Similarities

The following letter to the editor appears in the forthcoming July issue of Catholic World Report:

“Having an abortion is wrong, but each person should decide, according to his own conscience, whether or not to have an abortion; state officials should not presume to make such a decision for anyone.” That is, essentially, the position taken by certain American politicians.

“Receiving Communion while defying the Church on the issue of abortion is wrong; but each person should decide, according to his own conscience, whether or not he should receive Communion; Church officials should not presume to make such a decision for anyone.” That is, essentially, the position taken by certain American bishops.

Does anyone notice a certain similarity?
