Nina Butorac, in a column in the Seattle P-I, deals with some of these.A Catholic Democrat who is a eucharistic minister and chair of the Peace and Justice Committee at Blessed Sacrament Parish in Seattle, she asks us to consider some points.

Does Pro-Life mean only protecting the life of the unborn?Butorac says, "I am pro-life.I consider abortion a moral evil."She suggests that both sides have common ground.
Butorac says, "Pro-life is compassionate, humble and respects human dignity . . . does not build up a military power . . . at the expense of the sick, the vulnerable, the old and the unborn."
Butorac asks, "How did the ‘war president' come to be the ‘life candidate' in this, or any, election?"
"On June 18 the American Council of Catholic Bishops, meeting in Colorado, declared it acceptable (though not necessary) for a priest to withhold communion from any Catholic in public office who dissents from Catholic teaching or, more specifically, does not actively pursue the criminalization of abortion."In California, "these same bishops were against Gray Davis, the Democratic (and pro-choice Catholic) incumbent," but, asks Butorac, "Where were the bishops when pro-choice Catholic Arnold Schwarzenegger was running for governor?"
I like Archbishop Alex Brunett's pastoral letter statement: "Ministers of the Eucharist should not take it upon themselves to deny Holy Communion to anyone who presents themselves."And further, "the Eucharist must never become an instrument of division."
Nina Butorac's article is three pages, printed.Surely I have not done justice to it.But she does give us serious Catholics food for thought.
