One issue that I have here - why do we just focus on Catholics. There are numerous pro-life Protestants yet we ignore them. Sure, their beliefs differ from ours, but as life is so important, should we not engage with them on this issue? Whether we do it unwittingly or not, we make Protestants believe that life is a "Catholic" issue and they are offended by it as a lot of them are as prolife as we are. Let us be ecumenical here - we are so much stronger together than apart.
As a Catholic priest, I speak to my own people as Protestant Ministers speak to theirs. I agree that Pro-Life issues are not limited to Catholic or Protestant, Christian or Jewish. These are HUMAN RIGHTS we are defending but the laity are better suited to bridge the divide between denominations as fellow citizens. No one is preventing YOU and others to reach out and build alliances with our brothers and sisters of other faiths.
