BALTIMORE (AP)- The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will issue ethical guidelines this week for Catholic voters to consider in next year's elections.

The draft document being discussed at the bishops' meeting in Baltimore says faithful Catholics must oppose abortion and euthanasia, but also should be concerned about "hunger, poverty, racism, unjust immigration policies and unjust war."

The draft document also urges more Catholics to run for office and become politically active.

The voter guidelines are to be distributed in Catholic parishes next year as bulletin inserts.
