If you don't support 100% right to life, totally opposed to abortion, you can't be a good Catholic according to the Pope.

The Catholic Church wisely (or cowardly, depending on your perspective) really doesn't press participants on this. I read a while back that something like 2/3 of American Catholics disagree with the Church's position on abortion, marriage, and divorce.

Were the shrinking Church to really emphasize these points from the pulpit and begin excommunicating people who disagree, the ranks of the RCC faithful in America would soon be all but empty.
