.- Catholic League President Bill Donahue issued a stern warning to Catholic lawmakers attending the upcoming âSummit on the States,â at which the pro-abortion group Catholics for a Free Choice will be presenting
CFFC has been invited to give a presentation called, âProgressive, Pro-choice and CatholicâAn Endangered Species?â at the December 2nd summit, due to be held at Washingtonâs Capital Hilton.
In an open letter to Catholic lawmakers, issued Monday, Donahue pointed out that âCFFC is not simply an abortion-rights groupâit is a profoundly anti-Catholic organization.â
He denounced the group as a âprofoundly anti-Catholic organization,â and noted that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops âhas twice voted to condemn CFFC as a fraud.â
He also cited CFFCâs president, Frances Kissling, who âhas even gone so far as to say that her goal is to âoverthrowâ the Catholic Church.â
Donahue urged lawmakers to steer clear of CFFCâs meeting and warned Catholics that he would provide âfree publicityâ to any who attend. âYour constituentsâ, he said, âneed to know who their leaders really are.â
Added the Catholic League president: âany Catholic who consorts with CFFC is no friend of the Catholic Church.â
