There goes that \"pro-life\" Catholic League again!

 |  NCR Today

Although I refuse to get involved in the faux debate between working mothers and stay-at-home moms (I'm both), I was appalled to see the Catholic League take a swipe at adoption in its Tweet about today's back-and-forth about whether Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, "works."

The Tweet
: "Lesbian Dem Hilary Rosen tells Ann Romney she never worked a day in her life. Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised 5 of her own."

Really? This is what a "prolife" Catholic organization thinks about adoption? Or is it just adoption by lesbians they despise? Methinks the League just wanted to get as many personal attacks on Rosen it could in 140 characters. Classy. Why am I not surprised?
