Hollywood director takes shot at Catholicism again, says Catholic League

.-  Hollywood producer David E. Kelley has once again “shown himself to be positively obsessed with Catholicism,” says Catholic League president Bill Donohue.

On yesterday’s episode of “Boston Legal,” a teenage girl who is raped, becomes pregnant and then wants to sue a Catholic hospital for denying her emergency contraception.

“His treatment of Catholicism on ‘Ally McBeal,’ ‘Picket Fences,’ ‘Chicago Hope,’ ‘Snoops,’ ‘The Practice’ and ‘Boston Legal’ is so well known that we have a big fat file on him,” said Donohue.

“This time Kelley has decided to hook up with the equally anti-Catholic folks at the ACLU — the Pennsylvania affiliate is providing a viewing guide that can facilitate discussions at a ‘Boston Legal Viewing Party.’” 

Donohue cited the Pro-Life Secretariat of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which maintains that: “A 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.”

“But don’t look for the party animals at a ‘Boston Legal Viewing Party’ to be instructed in such nuances,” said Donohue.
