Letter to the Editor: Stand is not the same

By WILLIAM SHARP

Editor:

I think Mormons hoping to capitalize on the death of the Pope John Paul II, keep insisting they have the same position on moral issues like abortion as the Pope did. See (John Wrights forum letter 4-10-05 Salt Lake Tribune and Richard Holtzapfel BYU religion professor Deseret News article 4-3-05).

Nothing could be further from the truth. The Catholic Church opposes all abortions without exceptions, while the LDS Church officially allows abortions in the cases of rape, incest, deformity, risk of life and risk of health of the mother (Gordon Hinckley, Ensign Magazine, 11-98, page 71).

Mormons use basically the same wording and position as Roe vs. Wade which legalized abortion in America as many Mormon Democrats well know.
