This Bishop is Calling for a "#MeToo Movement for Unborn Children Targeted for Abortion

"Catholic political leaders have a serious obligation in this matter. Abortion is sinful; it is immoral. It destroys life and exploits women. Disciples of Christ do not support abortion. Period." -Bishop Thomas Tobin

The Catholic bishop used Twitter on Tuesday to send out the call.

The bishop said in his tweet that abortion equated to "Capital punishment for babies." He also called abortion the "exploitation of vulnerable women."

The "#MeToo" movement is a widespread social media campaign to help demonstrate the existence of sexual violence and harassment. The hashtag phrase is often posted along with stories of victims sharing their stories.

The bishop also dressed down the abortion lobby's appropriation of civil rights for its promotion of abortion in the tweet.

"We hear about 'reproductive rights' or 'right to choose.' There is no 'right' to end the life of an unborn child. We need a #MeToo movement for unborn children. Abortion: Capital punishment for babies, and exploitation of vulnerable women. Wrong, just wrong!

Bishop Tobin identifies himself as "ardently pro-life" in his Twitter profile.

He was forthright about abortion another time on Twitter recently, tweeting rather frankly on March 15 how Catholics cannot support abortion.

"To be clear: Catholics cannot provide, support or encourage abortion," the bishop stated. "Catholic political leaders have a serious obligation in this matter. Abortion is sinful; it is immoral. It destroys life and exploits women. Disciples of Christ do not support abortion. Period."

He also challenged gender politics in a tweet earlier last month:

"Just read that some Mother's Day cards this year will be "gender-neutral," avoiding the word 'Mother,'" he said. "They'll be 'Guardian' cards, or 'Happy You' cards. So it's official: our culture has become completely irrational."
