Editor's Note: During a teleconference today, evangelical and Catholic leaders challenged people of faith to evaluate candidates on a consistent ethic of life that protects life from the "womb to tomb" and requires us to consider a broad range of issues such as poverty, war, and the environment as pro-life issues.
Key quote from Jim Wallis:
We want to evaluate candidates as to whether they are really pro-life enough. We want to focus on a consistent ethic of life that leads us to challenge both political parties and sometimes the selective moralities of the Left and the Right. Unborn children and poor children are both in the category of the vulnerable and the category that Jesus asks us to defend. We need to make abortion reduction and poverty reduction a non-partisan issue and a bipartisan cause.
