Catholic League warns lawmakers against “Catholic” pro-abortion group at upcoming policy summit

.- Catholic League President Bill Donahue issued a stern warning to Catholic lawmakers attending the upcoming ‘Summit on the States,’ at which the pro-abortion group Catholics for a Free Choice will be presenting

CFFC has been invited to give a presentation called, “Progressive, Pro-choice and Catholic—An Endangered Species?” at the December 2nd summit, due to be held at Washington’s Capital Hilton.

In an open letter to Catholic lawmakers, issued Monday, Donahue pointed out that “CFFC is not simply an abortion-rights group—it is a profoundly anti-Catholic organization.” 

He denounced the group as a “profoundly anti-Catholic organization,” and noted that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “has twice voted to condemn CFFC as a fraud.” 

He also cited CFFC’s president, Frances Kissling, who “has even gone so far as to say that her goal is to ‘overthrow’ the Catholic Church.”

Donahue urged lawmakers to steer clear of CFFC’s meeting and warned Catholics that he would provide “free publicity” to any who attend. “Your constituents”, he said, “need to know who their leaders really are.”

Added the Catholic League president: “any Catholic who consorts with CFFC is no friend of the Catholic Church.”
