Answer by Judie Brown on 10-06-2012:


Your link does not work but ... there is every reason to believe CHAPUT nailed it whe he said:

What is a “proportionate” reason when it comes to the abortion issue? It’s the kind of reason we will be able to explain, with a clean heart, to the victims of abortion when we meet them face to face in the next life–which we most certainly will. If we’re confident that these victims will accept our motives as something more than an alibi, then we can proceed.
