LSN: Government Funded CRS still supporting Third-World abortion activities
Years ago I heard that CRS (Catholic Relief Services) was giving money to agencies that were pro-abortion. At that time I sent donations to them. I sent them a letter expressing my dismay. I don’t remember if I received a reply from CRS, but they did take me off their mailing list as a result. Every year my parish still has a collection to support CRS though.
Then LifeSiteNews published this article yesterday stating that CRS gets 2/3’s of its funds from USAID and it continues to fund various firms and organizations whose main goal is population control. As the LSN article states:
Brown’s point was echoed by Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, who said CRS implicates itself in population control by the very fact that it receives over two thirds of its funding from USAID.
“CRS knows very well what the principal purpose of USAID is. And it tries to, in various ways, to massage that purpose, and avoid being implicated in the purpose of population control,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, they know who’s paying their salaries, and that’s why the money goes to CARE, that’s why the money goes to PSI, that’s why the money goes back and forth to other population control agencies, because that’s what their masters in the federal government demand of them.”
“This is not an agency of the institutional Catholic Church. This is a separate aid agency, which, because it receives two thirds of its funding from the U.S. government, is Catholic in name only,” he added. “No man can serve two masters.”
