.- The American Life League applauded the U.S. bishops' decision earlier this week to study how the Church should respond to pro-abortion politicians who claim to be Catholic.
As part of its Crusade for the Defense of Our Catholic Church, the league has focused attention on such politicians whose positions contradict crucial Church teachings.
The issue was the focus of their ad campaign that appeared in the Washington Post Monday, urging the bishops to take the problem by the horns during their semi-annual meeting here this week. The bishops responded by appointing a committee to study appropriate Church responses to pro-abortion politicians.
According to the league, there are more than 400 pro-abortion Catholic politicians in the U.S.
