Ny Bishops Prioritize "Life" NOT MONEY in Vote

I'd rather meet my maker (God) with a baby in my arms instead of an extra dollar in my pocket...

NY Bishops: Prioritize "Life" in vote
New York's Catholic bishops today urged people to vote -- and place the "right to life" above other issues.

"To the extent candidates reject this fundamental right by supporting an objective evil, such as legal abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research, Catholics should consider them less acceptable for public office," said the statement from Cardinal Edward Egan and the states bishops.

Democrat Barack Obama supports stem cell research and opposes a constitutional amendment to overturn Roe vs. Wade. John McCain calls Roe vs. Wade a flawed decision that should be overturned. He said the abortion question should be the jurisdiction of individual states.
In the latest Siena Research Institute statewide poll, 40 percent of New York Catholics favored Obama and 47 percent McCain.

"Overall, Catholics are not as supportive of Obama as is the population as a whole," said poll spokesman Steven Greenberg.
