I'm Catholic, pro-choice and support gay rights. Mind blow, eh?
I mean, I believe in the bible and go to church and try to live a good life, but I value women's rights and human rights above outdated random verses of the bible that COULD be viewed as meaning abortion is wrong and being gay is wrong.
The old testament says we can have the village stone our disobedient kids if we do choose... only a few pages away from where it says don't be gay. So is the OT still accurate?
Edit: Abortion didn't even exist 2000 years ago, did it? So I don't think Jesus was all "Hey, in the future, don't abort your fetuses!" because Jesus wasn't psychic about medical advancements.
Not all Catholics are hard-liners. I live in France, a Catholic country, and abortion has been an option since the 70s.
