Vatican Objects to Caroline Kennedy As Ambassador Due to Abortion Stance
The Women on the Web: Vatican Rebuffs Caroline Kennedy Ambassador Seat Over Abortion, Say Sources:
Just when Caroline Kennedy was recovering from the political mess over her bid for Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat, she now has hit some more political roadblocks. And these are coming from a holier land: the Vatican.
The Massachusetts Catholic Action League and sources within the Vatican itself are protesting the idea President Obama may appoint JFK’s daugher as an ambassador to the Vatican. Why are they so angry? Because Ms. Kennedy, a Catholic, supports abortion rights.
