Talking points to consider for two social issues of concern for Catholics

| April 10, 2014 | 0 Comments


Here are talking points for HF 2293/SF 2368, the Payday Lending Regulation Bill, and HF 291/SF 2627, the Commercial Surrogacy Bill — both of which need urgent consideration and action by Minnesota Catholics:

Common sense payday lending reforms

“Help Minnesotans avoid the payday lending debt trap. Please support HF 2293/SF 2368, the Payday Lending Regulation bill.”

Legalization of commercial surrogacy

“Please vote NO on the Commercial Surrogacy Bill, HF 291/SF 2627. Commercial surrogacy threatens the well-being of women and children. It is banned in some states and in many countries. Women are not for rent, and children are not for sale.”
