Catholics, abortion, Notre Dame and Obama’s common ground

I’m one of those Catholics who believe in individual choice. I don’t condone abortion, but I don’t think it’s my business, or the government’s for that matter, to restrict you or anyone else from getting one. If that’s what you want.  I’ll pray for you . But I won’t deny you.

This is all about dealing with the contradictions. For example, how does Bush a get off calling himself pro-life after making a living off death row all his political career?

So is my contradiction better than his? I think it is. And somewhere around there is where I think we’ll find common ground. It won’t be on the edges where Alan Keyes and his radical  counterparts are.

It will  definitely be  someplace quieter. And then we can make a breakthrough in this old debate.
