Column, letters advocated seamless garment

To the editor:

In the October Catholic Courier three letters to the editor and Father Richard McBrien’s column all seemed to support the “seamless garment” approach to life issues.

However, it must be noted that no human life issue, outside of euthanasia, compares to abortion.

Capital punishment, on the other hand, can be used in rare instances to protect society from a dangerous murderer.

A candidate for office who supports abortion but is OK with other life issues cannot be considered a viable candidate for Catholic voters.

How can abortion be stopped unless Catholics vote for pro-life politicians?

Catholic clergy like Father McBrien don’t make this task any easier by promoting a concept of proportionality that implies all human life issues are morally equivalent!
