Supreme Knight reiterates call to end abortion, support marriage
QUEBEC CITY (CNS) — Supreme Knight Carl Anderson challenged American Catholics to overturn the “regime of Roe v. Wade” in November by withholding their votes from any candidate who supports abortion. He made the comments during an address to the 126th annual convention of the Knights of Columbus in Quebec City. In a wide-ranging 68-minute report that reviewed the organization’s accomplishments during the last year, Anderson saved his strongest comments for nearly the end of his address. He criticized politicians of all parties who court Catholic voters by saying that abortion is one of many issues that deserve attention in any election. “It’s time to put away the arguments of political spin masters that only serve to justify abortion killing,” Anderson said. During his speech, Anderson said voters in California, Colorado and South Dakota have the chance to limit abortion by voting for ballot initiatives Nov. 4. Anderson also promised that the Knights would remain focused on protecting marriage as a life issue.
