Liberal Democratic politicians who identify themselves as “pro-choice” Catholics invariably try to justify their position by saying that they cannot, in good conscience, vote to restrict someone else’s freedoms.
The next time you hear “conscience” invoked by any of the legislators listed below, have a good hearty laugh. Then ask whythey should be free to exercise their consciences, when they vote to deny others the same right.

  • Senator Maria Cantwell, Democrat, of Washington
  • Senator Richard Durbin, Democrat, of Illinois
  • Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat, of New York
