Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • Bishop Kagan encouraged all Catholics to pray a rosary each day in October for the end of abortion. Kagan affirmed that abortion is “the direct and intentional killing of an innocent human being where this child should be safest.” Kagan urged all pro-lifers to “intensify” their daily prayers for “an end to this scourge and plague on our nation and our world.” (Diocese of Bismark)
  • In 2012, Bishop Kagan wrote an article intending to help form Catholic consciences before an upcoming national election. Kagan explained that Catholic social teaching reminds us, “from the first moment of human conception to the last moment of life on earth, the person must be respected without exception.” For this reason, Kagan wrote that abortion is “never acceptable and should not be made so by law.” (Diocese of Bismark)
