Catholic Charities, Vincent de Paul Society Supporting Abortion-providing Health Care Plan

| 5 Comments

Washington, DC (29 July 2009) -

Three of the top lay Catholic organizations have divorced themselves from Catholic teaching by supporting the Obama health-care plan, which would foster a culture of mandatory abortion coverage, contraceptive services, and permissive sex education, euthanasia and eugenics.

Catholic Charities USA, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Catholic Health Association are joining together to push the current version of the plan through Congress.

"There is no social justice in rationing charity," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "Millions of taxpayers will be forced to subsidize abortion, contraception, euthanasia and bureaucratic denial of health care to the poorest of the poor."

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul and Catholic Charities USA sent out an action alert asking members to contact their legislators immediately:

We must maintain momentum for health care reform efforts with calls and emails supporting health care reform immediately. ... Your members of Congress need to hear from you that you support health care reform, and that the system needs to be reformed now.

The Catholic Health Association put together a YouTube video showing people displaying messages such as "I can't wait for health-care reform" and "We can't wait until the signing ceremony."

"All these organizations claim to be faithful to Catholic social teaching - which unambiguously and passionately puts respect for human personhood at the core of all other social and charitable works," Brown pointed out. "Yet these same organizations are undermining the very foundation they exist to protect and foster: the dignity of human persons and the sanctity of their right to life."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

Everyone needs to support Congressman Mike Pence in defeating this travesty that's being perpetrated upon the American People.

The Blue Dog Democrats have now caved in and if you reside in one of their Congressional Districts you need to telephone their office, follow up with and e-mail, and then FAX them if we are to prevent Abortion Funded Healthcare frfom sweeping across our nation!

I am Catholic and I am offended, How could some of my in faithers support killing and murdering babies!? !

Yes, Joanne, which begs the question, "how could 54% of Catholics vote an Abortionist into the office of President?"

Somewhere we have failed miserably within the Pro-Life movement. Rather than stand toe-to-toe with Abortionists and argue our "talking bullets" with people who's minds are set in concrete, we should have been busy converting the hearts and minds of the people. After all, an "On-Fire" Christian is going to vote Pro-Life, not the "Lukewarm" Christians.

St. Francis said that the only thing we should concern ourselves with is preaching repentance and penance. Had we listened to and followed his example, we wouldn't be in the pickle we're in today...

Pax Et Bonum!

Joanne, Don't be offended because it's not true. I couldn't believe it myself so I looked into it. They support Health care reform like everyone in the USA but they DO NOT support the current Obama reform. You can check it out at Catholic charities website- http://www.catholiccharitiesusa.org/netcommunity/page.aspx?pid=1174 and also at St Vincent de Paul Society http://www.svdpusa.org/
God Bless you all!

No matter how much Catholic Charities USA denies it, it will go along with any program as long as it means money in their pockets. A few years ago, I would not have believed it, but since inception of the current administration, so many in power have lied to us for so long and are so indifferent to how we feel, that it will be a long time before I feel like I did under Bush. He made mistakes, but they were mistakes and not deliberate tactics to manipulate us. And, let's face it, the Iraquis are better off for what he did. Will we be after this adminstration is no longer in power? Hardley, and many of our aborted citizens will not even have the chance to experience the downfall. Maybe that is a good thing.
