Reverend opposes abortion law, calls pro-life view extreme

A clergyman spoke out against a law restricting abortion by saying:

“Our moral imperative is to commit ourselves to the care of the born.… We should create laws that promote the common good and not narrow, extreme political and religious ideologies.”

Rev. Patrick Hurley, president of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado and retired pastor Presbyterian Church, Pueblo

Is it a “narrow, extreme political and religious ideology” to oppose this?
