Kentucky Catholic Students at Pro-Life March Mock Native Americans; Michael Sean Winters Chides Catholics Lukewarm to Pro-Life Movement — Side-by-Side Stories

On what the Covington Catholic high school students did, see this report by WHAS in Louisville, stating, 

The students were in Washington for the March for Life, an annual anti-abortion rally happening on the same day as the Indigenous Peoples March.

The website of Covington Catholic has an announcement of the school's intent to participate in the March for Life, linking to a letter to parents stating,

Once again this year we offer our students the opportunity to participate in this most worthwhile event, the 46th anniversary of the March for Life, demonstrating our support for all Life, "born and unborn."

Yesterday National Catholic Reporter published an essay by Michael Sean Winters entitled. "Liberal Catholics have work to do to support consistent ethic of life," in which Winters shakes his finger at liberal Catholics for, as he perceives it, not supporting the pro-life cause with sufficient ardor. Winters emphasizes (see the title of the essay) that the pro-life cause is about supporting a "consistent" ethic of life.

Perhaps someone might explain to Mr. Winters that filthy racism is not pro-life. And perhaps someone might inform him that the "pro-life" demonstrators at this event cheered Mr. Trump, whose policies are not in any shape, form, or fashion pro-life.

But, honestly, what's the use? If the Winters of the Catholic journalistic world can't see by now how anti-life the movement they are calling pro-life has become, and if they can't see the handwriting on the wall about what the pro-life movement means in reality after 6 in 10 white Catholics put Donald Trump in the White House as they claimed to vote pro-life, then they aren't going to see. 

Because they don't want to see.
