Catholic newspaper editorial addresses abortion doctor’s slaying

In an editorial for its June 14 issue, already posted on the Web, the editors of Our Sunday Visitor, a national Catholic newsweekly based in Huntington, Ind., say the killing of a Kansas abortion doctor who performed late-term abortions “has transformed him into a martyr for the cause of abortion ‘rights.'”

And his slaying “has smeared by extension all those dedicated to defense of unborn human life,” they write.
