Asked on the program about when life begins, Biden said: “Look, I know when it begins for me. It’s a personal and private issue. For me, as a Roman Catholic, I am prepared to accept the teachings in my church.”He added that while he believes life begins “at the moment of conception,” it would inappropriate to impose that view on others in a pluralistic society.The bishops [Cardinal Justin Rigali and Bishop William Lori ] said Biden was right to say human life begins at conception. But the church “does not teach this as matter of faith; it acknowledges it as a matter of objective fact,” they said.“Protection of innocent human life is not an imposition of personal religious conviction but a demand of justice,” they added.
I love priests of strong convictions!
