Crookston, Fargo Bishops urge Obama to oppose abortion

The Catholic bishops in Crookston and Fargo returned this week from a national meeting of bishops in Baltimore ready to make clear to President-elect Barack Obama and their flocks that they oppose his support for abortion rights.

Obama is “one of the strongest supporters of legalized abortion, as well as the Freedom of Choice Act,” Bishop Samuel Aquila of Fargo wrote in a column in the diocesan newsletter.

The Democratic president-elect therefore “directly opposes the divine law of God concerning the dignity of each human life, and so he strongly disagrees with the position of the Catholic Church,” Aquila continued.
