From a Pre-Roe essay on choice

The following is an excerpt from a paper written by a high school student in 1970. Enjoy!

"Religion should be the last thing to consider in state and national abortion laws. Many church leaders themselves are opposed to making their own standards mandatory for others. Boston's Richard Cardinal Cushing feels that Catholics do no need the support of civil law to be faithful to their religious beliefs, they should not seek to impose by law their moral view on other members of out society."
