WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Roman Catholic Church is putting its weight behind two controversial amendments you'll see on the ballot this November.
This summer, the Diocese of Palm Beach took a cue from the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops and urged its 49 parishes, or churches, to push Amendments 6 and 8.
Amendment 6 would require parental notification before a minor can get an abortion.
Amendment 8 would allow churches that provide social services to get taxpayer money.
Signs were up today at Catholic parishes from Palm Beach Gardens to Boca Raton.
"Pro-life is a pillar of the Catholic community," said Dianne Laubert, spokeswoman for the Diocese of Palm Beach. Federal law prohibits non-profits - like churches - from actively backing candidates, but it doesn't bar churches from taking stands on issues.
