Catholic War Veterans Respond to Washington Governor’s Support for Naral and Abortion


ALEXANDRIA, VA: On May 18, 2009, Catholic Gov. Christine Gregoire of the state of Washington attended NARAL Pro-Choice America’s “Power of Choice Luncheon” fundraiser in Seattle.

NARAL (formerly known as the National Abortion Rights Action League) organized the event specifically to honor the leadership of their retiring Washington State Executive Director, Ms. Karen Cooper. During the event Gov. Gregoire is reported to have spoken very highly of Ms. Cooper for her work for NARAL promoting unrestricted abortion in the state of Washington and our country. Gov. Gregoire stated, “We are blessed to have had you as our great leader.” And “Women across the state can be proud of your advocacy.” She also made reference that there are many future unborn who will benefit from her (Ms. Cooper’s) leadership.

Today, the Catholic War Veterans of the U.S.A. want to ask Gov. Gregoire if being murdered is the “benefit” that these innocent unborn women and men (and quite possibly, future veterans) can look forward to as a result of NARAL’s lobbying efforts and her continued support? In time of war, Catholics are called with all other citizens to serve and defend the life of our nation.

In responding to this call, veterans are acutely aware of the meaning, hope, and value of every human life. We are deeply saddened by Gov. Gregoire’s continued support for abortion in the State of Washington and her continued public disregard for the teachings of our jointly held faith.
