On the Feast of the Holy Innocents, Say NO to Providers of Abortifacients!

  • In the decades after Blessed Pope Paul VI's Humanae Vitae, a misguided pastoral approach has been frequently at play, downplaying that the encyclical reiterated the Church's constant teaching on the absolute prohibition of contraception. 

    Humanae Vitae has also shown itself to have been prophetic.  And we now know that much of what gets sold as "contraceptive" can work in an abortifacient manner.  This is true of hormonal contraceptives, most especially of so-called "emergency contraception." 

    Ads for providers of abortifacients/contraceptives should absolutely NOT be appearing in parish bulletins or other publications - are they doing so because of legalistic notions about "cooperation"?  (In thinking about "material cooperation," some MISTAKENLY act as though that meant "cooperation that does not matter".... ). 

    For the spiritual good of the clergy and the laity - perhaps most especially the  pharmacists themselves - let the Feast of the Holy Innocents mark the start of your own "NO" to Ads for providers of abortifacients/contraceptives.
  • Email USCCB President Cardinal DiNardo, USCCB Pro Life Chair Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop Chaput, and National Catholic Bioethics Center President John Haas, PhD, STL, to ask for an end to ANY use of emergency (so-called) contraception in Catholic hospitals.
