Abortion politics

  • Bishop Conlon co-wrote a statement in November of 2011 with the other five bishops of Illinois denouncing Catholic Governor Pat Quinn for claiming that his decision to present an award at a pro-abortion event was the “proper Christian thing to do.” The statement said Quinn’s pro-abortion stance is “irreconcilable with any honest profession of the Catholic faith” and that his action rewards those who kill children in their mother’s womb. It also said that “those acting in the manner of the governor should not be given special recognition on church property or at functions held in support of church ministry.” (LifeSiteNews)
