GOP not pro-life

Letters to the Editor | Tuesday, April 8, 2008

I’m tired of the hypocrisy of so many so-called Catholic pro-lifers that feel they must vote Republican in order to preserve the sanctity of life. What about capital punishment? Torture? Unjust treatment of homosexuals? Of women? Of the poor and disadvantaged? The lack of contraceptives in Africa? The ongoing destruction of our only Earth?

Do these not also affect the sanctity of life? I hope people will rethink their decisions to assume that the GOP is the beacon of truth and light in the political arena.
