LA CROSSE, Wisconsin, October 26, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A lawyer for the Catholic diocese of La Crosse has been exposed as having made substantial contributions to pro-abortion political candidates. James G. Birnbaum was one of two US lawyers employed by Catholic dioceses who refused to allow distribution of the Voters’ Guide produced by the lay apologetics organization, Catholic Answers.
