.- Hollywood producer David E. Kelley has once again âshown himself to be positively obsessed with Catholicism,â says Catholic League president Bill Donohue.
On yesterdayâs episode of âBoston Legal,â a teenage girl who is raped, becomes pregnant and then wants to sue a Catholic hospital for denying her emergency contraception.
âHis treatment of Catholicism on âAlly McBeal,â âPicket Fences,â âChicago Hope,â âSnoops,â âThe Practiceâ and âBoston Legalâ is so well known that we have a big fat file on him,â said Donohue.
âThis time Kelley has decided to hook up with the equally anti-Catholic folks at the ACLU â the Pennsylvania affiliate is providing a viewing guide that can facilitate discussions at a âBoston Legal Viewing Party.ââ
Donohue cited the Pro-Life Secretariat of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which maintains that: âA woman who has been raped should be able to defend herself from a potential conception and receive treatment to suppress ovulation and incapacitate sperm. If conception has occurred, however, a Catholic hospital will not dispense drugs to interfere with implantation of a newly conceived human embryo.â
âBut donât look for the party animals at a âBoston Legal Viewing Partyâ to be instructed in such nuances,â said Donohue.
