I, like many of us, participated in the Bishops’ postcard campaign to our local congressmen and senators. Chris Carney is my representative and his office sent me a reply. Here is the brunt of the message:
“As a Roman Catholic father of five, I do not favor abortion. I cannot imagine my life without my children and believe that spending time with your children is one of life’s greatest joys. I favor responsible education and complete access to reproductive health care. I am a strong supporter of adoption and making it easier for families to adopt children into loving homes.”
He does not favor abortion.
He supports complete access to reproductive care.
Responsible education and complete access are almost the exact positions of Planned Parenthood. It seems he holds the regular Catholic Democrat line: He personally opposes abortion but can’t legislate his views on others! Correct me if I’m wrong!
