now Pro-life and pro-choice: Catholics in the middle


Many people do not think of Catholic and pro-choice as belonging in the same sentence let alone the same church. But donít tell that to Frances Kissling, head of Catholics for a Free Choice.

The group is one of several religious organizations in America that support a womanís right to choose.

In the wake of South Dakotaís new abortion law, Kissling sat down with NOWís senior correspondent Maria Hinojosa to talk about one of the most polarizing issues in American culture.

"I often think that itís those who say they are pro-life that are often more pro-abortion than anyone else," Kissling told Hinojosa.
