(BREITBART) – Jesuit Father Thomas Reese has published a disgraceful essay urging Americans to vote for pro-choice Democrats while claiming that defunding Planned Parenthood is "irresponsible."
Writing for Religion News Service (RNS) – Father Reese, the former editor-in-chief of America Magazine – says that "pro-lifers must consider voting for candidates, even pro-choice Democrats, who will reduce the number of abortions by supporting programs that help mothers and their children."
In his political propaganda piece aimed at discrediting President Trump's recent moves to partially defund Planned Parenthood, Father Reese abandons his role as a Catholic cleric to stump for the Democratic Party.

Closing Planned Parenthood clinics "that provide health care and birth control to women before replacements are up and running is irresponsible and counterproductive," he writes.
