WASHINGTON, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to a new poll of Catholic voters carried out by Belden Russonello and Stewart for Catholics for Choice, Catholics support both a public option in healthcare reform and a plan that would include funding for abortion.

By Silvia Aloisi ROME (Reuters) - The Vatican newspaper criticized on Tuesday comments by Italy's health minister in favor of the abortion pill, setting the tone for a drawn-out battle with the new centre-left government over its proposed social policies. L'Osservatore Romano called the RU-486 abortion pill a weapon to carry out "carefree murder," speaking out for the second time in as many days against two of Romano Prodi's women ministers, less than a week after they were sworn...
