Recently – according to The Daily Kos – the Catholic nun Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B., discussed some of her feelings on abortion and the pro-life movement:
“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”
Deadstate.org writes that Chittister is an advocate for women’s rights and the author of over 50 books, including a new one set to be released in September.
