Cardinal Maida mentions life issues at Granholm prayer service

One of the most controversial issues along Michigan's political trail -- abortion -- was raised during the service by Adam Cardinal Maida, Roman Catholic archbishop of Detroit, who was critical during the campaign of her pro-choice views. As anti-abortion demonstrators picketed outside the cathedral, Maida said the most fundamental of all rights is "the right to life, from the first moment of conception to the last gasp of breath." Asked later how she reacted to the cardinal's pointed remarks, Granholm deftly replied: "I very much respect his opinion," as well as those of "other faith leaders."
