Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe is standing for governor of Virginia and, like Joe Biden, he likes to say he is a "very strong Catholic."
Yet, also like Biden, he strongly supports killing unborn babies and is a longtime defender of the abortion industry. As if to underscore that fact, McAuliffe has even ghoulishly campaigned at an abortion center in his latest run for office.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which tells Terry McAuliffe to reject killing the innocent, stop supporting the abortion industry, and return to the Catholic Faith! This petition will also be CC'ed to the Virginia Catholic Bishops' Conference.
In spite of the fact that McAuliffe was born and raised in a Catholic family and graduated from a Catholic high school and university, he has supported the murder of the unborn throughout his life in elected office.
Indeed, McAuliffe has been taken to task several times by different dioceses. Going back to 2004, McAuliffe was disinvited as a guest speaker at his high school alma mater in Syracuse, New York, because of comments he made during a radio interview, saying that abortion is a matter of choice.
Fast-forward to 2017, when then-Governor McAuliffe (of Virginia) was excoriated by the Virginia Bishops' Conference for vetoing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood.
At the time, the Bishops' Conference stated that McAuliffe's "actions harm the dignity of women deceived by the multibillion-dollar abortion industry as well as the tiniest females, those still in the womb whose lives are brutally eliminated by abortion."
Nevertheless, McAuliffe apparently still sees nothing wrong with his support of killing unborn babies, and, as above, he recently toured an abortion mill for a morbidly opportunistic campaign photo-op. (See tweet below.)
Grateful for the opportunity to tour the Whole Woman’s Health facility in Charlottesville this afternoon with @SallyLHudson. I'll always fight to protect women's clinics as gov. No Youngkin Texas-style abortion ban in VA! pic.twitter.com/EmgDvK3AVY— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) September 9, 2021
Stepping foot inside a place where babies are actually killed, and then campaigning to keep such murderous facilities open, takes support for abortion to a heinous new low.
And, supporting abortion as a public official is even worse for McAuliffe in terms of his relationship with God and the Catholic Church.
While supporting abortion is always wrong, Catholic politicians who vocally support abortion have an even greater responsibility to renounce their wayward positions precisely because of the scandal it can cause to the Catholic faithful, very possibly leading many others astray.
Relying on the Catechism lessons he received throughout his high school and university education, Terry McAuliffe should now reconsider his position on the killing of unborn children, and take this opportunity to publicly repent of his support for abortion, the killing of the innocent.
If McAuliffe does not take steps to publicly repent of his adamant support of abortion, the bishops of Virginia should take this opportunity to address and clarify his relationship with the Eucharist and the Church.
Terry McAulliffe and all Virginians deserve to know about his standing in the Catholic Church, especially if his relationship with the Church is something he likes to speak about publicly.
Thank you for SIGNING this important petition, which will be CC'ed to the Viriginia Bishops' Conference, and which implores Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe to reject his support for abortion and the abortion industry.
After you have signed, please consider SHARING this vital petition with your like-minded friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.
