Stronger Response Needed


In contrast to the Catholic official response to the Supreme Court’s overturn of its Roe v. Wade decision was the desultory commentary on the court's New York gun law ruling. I find troubling your term to describe the reaction of the New York Catholic Conference as "troubled." A stronger response given the historical and citizen support of the New York law, as noted by the Conference, would have been a more Catholic pro-life reaction. I write this on July 4 after reports of another mass shooting using a weapon of war happened in Illinois. When will our bishops condemn the unfettered possession of military weapons by civilians as not consonant with a pro-life policy?
