Catholic Action Group supports boycott of Comic Relief fundraiser

.- Another pro-life group has come out in support of a boycott by Catholics of Red Nose Day, a fundraising event for Comic Relief, which is scheduled to take place in Catholic schools March 11. Recently, the Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child discovered that Comic Relief has financially supported the efforts of the pro-abortion organization, Reproductive Health Alliance Europe.

Despite this evidence, the bishops of England and Wales issued a statement this week telling Catholics that they can give to Comic Relief, assuring them that the charity would not support pro-abortion organizations.

In a statement, the Catholic Action Group said Catholics of good conscience should support this boycott and “donate their monies instead to mainstream pro-life groups in protest.

“Our English bishops, considering their apostolic position, remain far too silent and passive on this important issue,” said John Gunn, Catholic Action Group’s national coordinator. “There are over 180,000 abortions carried out in this country alone each year. The abortion issue deserves more of their attention and of Catholics in general.”
