Abortions are already killing more blacks in New York City alone than the Klan ever dreamed of...and sensationalizing the false premise that a woman must have unrestricted abortion rights before she can be "equal" to a man? That's being a Catholic?
In my RCIA classes, the instructor said that nowadays the Catholic church "proposes" teachings, doctrines, and beliefs and no longer "imposes" them on anyone. So we shouldn't hold our breath waiting for Cardinal Dolan or any Catholic clergy to say, "Andrew, we love you, and want to see you in church, but until you repent of your positions on abortion and same-sex marriage and go to confession, you may not receive Holy Communion." Such a statement seems entirely loving and reasonable to me and the least the bishops could do to protect the integrity of the Eucharist.
Dream on, I guess...
If you wonder what I'm babbling about, please read this article:Andrew Cuomo's Brave New 'Roe' from the National Catholic Register.
One bishop finally did speak out against the proposed new legislation: Gov. Cuomo's Promotion of Abortion Excludes God.
