In considering the decision to deny communion to abortion supporters, consider how hard it would be to pick a winner in a John Paul/Ginsberg face-off. The supreme court is near a massive die-off, one that many of us eagerly anticipated as Bush first took office. We conservative Kerry supporters desperately hope this won't happen for sometime, now.
The Church is thinking along these same lines, I would suspect. If you could replace Ginsberg with Scalia jr. and Stevens with Scalia jr. Considering how close "Roe" came to losing out a few years ago (turning on a fickle Kennedy) it was revealed in Blackman's papers, its not difficult to imagine that 4 more years of Bush could mean a victory the catholic church (and many others) have long fought for.
