Connecticut gubernatorial candidate John DeStefano, a Catholic, supports forcing Catholic hospitals to provide chemical abortions. Turning his back on religious liberty and unborn children has won him the endorsement of the pro-abortion group NOW: Although Mayor DeStefano’s opponent is a woman, it is crystal clear which gubernatorial candidate is best for the women of Connecticut,” […]

Michael Fedele, Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, spoke against forcing Catholic hospitals to provide chemical abortions in his Friday debate with his opponent: Asked about legislation that would require all hospitals, including Catholic ones, to provide rape victims with emergency contraception, Fedele said the issue is now moot because the FDA will allow over-the-counter sales […]

Al Adinolfi’s anti-Catholic opponent: On his web site, Dr. Brewer speaks in very vitriolic terms about the Family Institute Of Connecticut, the Catholic faith, “the radical right,” the government’s “religious base,” and so on.
