  The Catholic Church and abortion 24 June 2004  
Is it possible to be a practising catholic and pro choice?

The Catholic Church is opposed to abortion and to contraception, yet a campaign group set up by Catholics in the US says nearly two thirds of America's Catholics want abortion to be legal.

Catholics for a Free Choice is celebrating its 25th anniversary and has set up sister organisations in South America, Canada and Europe; including a small group here in the UK.

Jenni speaks to Jospehine Quintavalle and Dr Tina Beattie.
