This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

Does the Pro-Life Cause Need Better Allies? | National Catholic Reporter

Does the Pro-Life Cause Need Better Allies? | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: Worse yet, pro-life conservatives even resist calls for a living wage for families - meaning if you have more kids you get a tax credit backed increase in salary to cover the cost of another child.  If you ask them why they resist, they say that people should be sexually more responsible.  In other words, they really are anti-sex and anti-woman - just as the feminists characterize them.  The War on Women is real and we need to get out of it - although frankly the Church may be a leader in that war.  If the Church wants to bring clean hands to this debate, it needs to start paying the kind of living wage I mentioned to its employees, advocate it for all employees, and ordain a few women, including raising some Abbesses to the Order of Bishops.
