|"The Roman Catholic Church and her bishops are unequivocally pro-life; however, we do not always publicly support every initiative that comes before us in the name of pro-life." Bishop Latino|
The Diocese is not taking a position against Initiative 26. It is simply choosing to allow individual Catholics to make their own choice on the Initiative based on a formed conscience. Bishop Latino and the Diocese have maintained "the push for a state amendment could ultimately harm our efforts to overturn Roe vs. Wade."
