Catholics, Abortion, & Torture

Andrew Sullivan takes to task those Catholics who stand against abortion on all grounds, but turn a blind eye to torture.

There is no way that someone can say that a politician allowing abortion in a free society is on the same moral plane as directly authorizing, monitoring and covering up the torture of prisoners. No way. And any Catholic who voted for Bush in 2004, after the full evidence of his complicity in the torture of prisoners was well known should examine his or her conscience before examining anyone else's.

I semi-agree with this and also believe that supporting the death penalty while being against abortion is another double standard.
