Pro-Life Bishop Barron Challenges Extreme Abortion Positions of Catholic Politicians in the New York Post

Bishop Robert Barron, famous for his Word on Fire series, wrote a piece questioning politicians' extreme abortion positions, for the New York Post. (Video of Bishop Barron Address at the Library of Congress)
Bishop Barron is also the Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles. 
He wrote:
 "The Catholic bishops of the United States are facing a great deal of political pressure these days. We are told that we must pursue dialogue with those who disagree with the divine and natural law on the issue of abortion — or who agree privately as Catholic believers but decline to govern according to this moral teaching."
"But here is my honest question: What precisely is there to dialogue about? It’s a question I’ve posed to politicians in the past."
"All right, I wondered, would they be agreeable to supporting born-alive legislation, designed to protect the life of a baby who has miraculously managed to survive an abortion? No, they said.  And lest you think this intransigence was peculiar to this particular group, recall that, just a few months ago, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) made a born-alive proposal, and it couldn’t muster enough votes to break the Democratic filibuster." 
"Any authentic dialogue involves some willingness to give and take." 
"As I said, the church is happy to consider any proposal that would set some restrictions on the taking of unborn life. We’re willing to reach out. But if protecting the life of a baby struggling to breathe, after surviving a brutal attack on his life, is a bridge too far for pro-abortion-rights politicians, then I ask again, what are we dialoguing about?"
"So may I offer a challenge to pro-abortion-rights Catholic politicians and may I be very specific?  If you’re truly interested in dialoguing with the church on this crucial matter, show a little profile in courage and support born-alive legislation. If you can take this small step in the direction of protecting innocent life, I’ll know you’re serious about the conversation.
