Cdl. Dolan, NRTL, and Squishes

It's well-known in the Milwaukee pro-life circles that while he was here, Abp. Dolan cozied up to NRTL--an organization which supports 'exceptions' and is not in tune with Roman Catholic teachings on birth control.

Seems that NRTL has problems with Conservatives in other places

...More surprising to many conservatives are the endorsements by National Right to Life. NRTL has endorsed Lindsey Graham, Thad Cochran, Mitch McConnell, Pat Roberts and Thom Tillis for Senate in 2014. All of these endorsements are primary endorsements, and these are the only candidates NRTL has endorsed for Senate. In the North Carolina Senate primary, Tillis, who supports abortion exceptions, was opposed by two staunchly pro-life candidates in OB-GYN Greg Brannon and Pastor Mark Harris. NRTL has been taking an moderate stance for a while now, opposing Rep. Justin Amash’s amendment to defund all abortion providers, and kicking out Georgia Right to Life from the national network for being 100% pro-life.

So. What was Abp. Dolan thinking?  That being "mostly" pro-life is better than being totally so?  Or was he thinking schmooze?  We know that Abp. Dolan was completely silent on the abortion-pill legislation (unlike other Wisconsin Bishops.)

Yoo-hoo, Cdl. Dolan!
