posted on January 21, 2022

For National Catholic Reporter, Kathleen Sprows Cummings explains why she does not attend the March for Life, despite the fact she is Catholic, pro-life, and attended the event as a teenager. Studying feminism and becoming a mother herself played a role. “Ultimately, though,” she writes, “it was the clergy sex abuse scandal that soured me on any characterization of abortion as the pre-eminent moral issue of our time.” She continues, “It’s these and other odious cases of clerical sexual abuse and its episcopal cover-up—and they are legion—that make it hard to take U.S. bishops seriously when they claim to care about children, born or unborn.”
