CathNews today carries the story of Mr Malclom Turnbull, the Leader of the Federal Opposition, and nominally at least a Catholic, speaking at the Australian Christian Lobby Conference last week, in support of abortion:
"Mr Turnbull said women had the right to end an unwanted pregnancy.
"It is their choice," he said."
I trust we shall shortly see his bishop speak up and, in line with the better US bishop's, deny him communion unless he changes his position.
It is, of course, far too soon to think about what this means in an election context. Still, it should be a wakeup call for Liberal (non-cafeteria) Catholics to start organizing...bring on the mad monk (aka Tony Abbott)!
