Evangelicals, Catholics, and Abortion

Ross Douthat has two posts answering the question of why evangelicals are more pro-life than Catholics. While the details of his posts are well worth reading, I think he gets to the meat of it with this line: “[D]escribing oneself as an ‘evangelical’ tends to be a proxy for religious intensity in a way that describing oneself as a Catholic isn’t.” Self-described evangelicals of all denominations are likely to be intensely observant, theologically conservative, and at least somewhat socially conservative. Self-described Catholics run the gamut from ultra-tradtionalists to lasped Catholics who haven’t attended Mass in years.
