Cardinal George on the Common Good

Francis Cardinal George, OMI, speaking at the Bishop's Conference:

"The common good can never be adequately incarnated in any society when those waiting to be born can be legally killed at choice. If the Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision that African Americans were other people’s property and somehow less than persons were still settled constitutional law, Mr. Obama would not be president of the United States. Today, as was the case a hundred and fifty years ago, common ground cannot be found by destroying the common good."

His Eminence's full address can be read here.
