Most Catholics in Massachusetts legislature support Planned Parenthood, study shows

A study by a lay activist group has shown that most of the Catholics serving in the state legislature support Planned Parenthood.

The Catholic Action League found that 52 Catholics in the lower house were classified by the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund as either “champions” or “allies” of the group, while only 28 Catholic legislators were deemed “opponents.” In the upper house the results were even more striking, with 91% of the self-identified Catholics categorized as supporters of Planned Parenthood.

Graduates of Catholic colleges and universities were even more likely than other Catholic legislators to support the abortion lobby. Of the thirty members of the House who have received degrees from Catholic institutions of higher education, twenty-one, or 70%, supported Planned Parenthood.

In an analysis of the statistics, C.J. Doyle of the Catholic Action League wrote: “The number of Catholic political defectors from the pro-life to the pro-abortion side is too extensive to accurately recount.” He added that local observers could not cite a single case of a Catholic legislator moving from a pro-abortion stand to the pro-life camp. “All the movement has been in one direction,” he said.
