The fifth amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that no person’s life is to be taken without due process of law. Obviously, no one’s life is to be taken unless the death penalty fits the bill. The death penalty is inherently in accord with Catholic social teaching. But the innocent unborn unjustly get the death penalty by the hundreds of thousands. The Constitution’s aim is to promote the general welfare by defining the rules of federal government, leaving what is not the federal government’s to the states and the people. But these rules do not authorize Congress to fund poverty programs, housing, education, the arts and much more. Swearing an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution means you legislate in accordance with its provisions. Abortion is totally unacceptable and unconstitutional. That the federal government isn’t doing “enough” to help the poor and disadvantaged is not a valid argument because it doesn’t have that power under the Constitution in the first place. There’s nothing to stop “the people” from helping the poor and disadvantaged. That’s our job as members of the Church.
