Abortion and climate change were compared several times in a recent speech by San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy, who insisted Catholics must not be single-issue voters.
Playing his part to influence the Catholic vote in the upcoming California presidential primaries, McElroy claimed both abortion and climate change are “core life issues” — while alleging the latter ends more human beings’ lives.
Abortion kills “more than 750,000 unborn children” but “the long-term death toll from unchecked climate change is larger and threatens the very future of humanity,” said McElroy.
The speech took place at the University of San Diego Thursday.
The long-term death toll from unchecked climate change is larger [than abortion] and threatens the very future of humanity.T
Speaking of contraception, which — in accordance with Church teaching — he admitted is “intrinsically evil,” McElroy alleged “it is a far greater moral evil for our country to abandon the Paris Climate Accord than to provide contraceptives in federal health centers.”
