US Catholic: “Well, we need to reject the pressures to be half-Catholic. And for me the way to do that is to be a pro‑life Democrat.
I am very serious about my commitment to pro‑life causes and yet at the same time I share with other Democrats the more traditional understanding of the common good. And I share with the Democrats a concern for the poor, a concern for the environment, and a concern for immigrant, and so on. So that is my way of trying to be a whole Catholic within the big picture.”
