.- A top pro-life leader said a religious coalition’s support of partial birth abortion shows that the group is "confused, at best."
Fr. Frank Pavone says the position taken by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice has more to do with political dogma than religious belief.
"One would think that a group that calls itself a 'Religious Coalition' would base its positions on Biblical or other religious grounds, but the RCRC seems to base its stances on the dictates of abortion profiteers," said Fr. Pavone, president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council.
However, partial birth abortion cannot be reconciled with "neither the Bible nor even the slightest respect for human life," Fr. Pavone explained.
"For the RCRC to claim that it values 'all human life' while supporting partial birth abortion shows that the group is confused, at best," he said in a statement.
