Proposed textbook's treatment of Roe vs. Wade is changed after opposition from Catholics and other pro-life advocates

Charlotte, N.C. -- A proposed North Carolina school textbook that described Roe vs. Wade as a ruling against government oppression of rights has been altered following opposition from Catholics and other pro-life advocates.

More than 1,800 participants in the Catholic Voice campaign e-mailed the state's Department of Public Construction with their concerns. The material was removed on Feb. 18.

Bishop of Raleigh Michael F. Burbidge and Bishop of Charlotte Peter J. Jugis wrote a letter of thanks to those who e-mailed their protest.
