In a statement posted at the Catholic League website on Tuesday, League president Bill Donohue blasted Sen. Chuck Schumer’s abortion bill, calling it “the most radical pro-abortion bill ever written.”
“On May 11, Sen. Chuck Schumer will introduce the Women’s Health Protection Act, the most radical pro-abortion bill ever written,” Donohue wrote, which would also “gut First Amendment protections for religious liberty.”
Schumer “has a problem with religious liberty whenever it collides with issues of sexuality,” Donohue noted. “His interest in abortion and gay rights clearly supersedes his interest in religious liberty, notwithstanding the fact that the Constitution explicitly mentions the free exercise of religion while saying nothing about abortion and gay rights.”
Schumer’s evolution epitomizes that of the Democratic Party itself, Donohue wrote, which has “radically turned against life and liberty.”
Indeed it has.
