Mitt Romney arrives for Florida rally on eve of 2012 election.

To the Catholic Sentinel:

I note with great concern the effort clergy and we followers exert to change Planned Parent from being the largest provider of abortions in the U.S.
In the recent presidential election it was noted by the Republican Party and others that our tax dollars are specified to an agency that kills babies.

Regrettably the number of Catholics (53 percent ) voted for the President and his party. There could be a significant reduction of the aborting of unborn humans with the education of Catholic voters.

They need to recognize the financing by the present political party funds Planned Parenthood.
This agency funded primarily by Congress is determined to destroy life while Christians are striving to save life.

The Republican Party can dismiss funds to Planned Parenthood and still have money for food, home, health, education and military.

It is too late now but does anyone think Gov. Romney would have stood for this slaughter of the unborn?

I don't disagree with your comments about the government's role and the Democratic endorsement of funded abortion. However, do you really want to support Republicans that have endorsed and contributed to perpetual war that has resulted in many deaths and sufferings? This party loyalty and Catholics believing that somehow the Republican Party and its candidates are upstanding servants we can rely on for good in an abhorrent misplacing of trust. While the Republican party, in general, may condemn abortion they support a culture of death by advocating the death penalty and continuous war and involvement with sovreign nations. We all need to start voting for the person, not the party. Neither corrupt party subscribes to our Catholic beliefs.

Framing the abortion question in such starkly partisan terms is both simplistic and counter-productive. We have had several Republican Presidents since 1973 and several Republican Congresses. None have halted or even slowed the nation-wide drive to the existing sad status of "abortion on demand" and Planned Parenthood continues its evil work undeterred.
