Michigan sisters’ support of pro-abortion group affront to Church, says American Life League

.- American Life League is outraged that the Immaculate Heart of Mary sisters in Michigan made a financial donation to a pro-abortion political group.

“There is never any justification for supporting a group that maintains a clear litmus test for the killing of preborn children through abortion,” said Joseph M. Starrs, director of American Life League’s Crusade for the Defense of Our Catholic Church.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary sisters made a $200 contribution to Emily’s List, the nation’s largest political network dedicated to electing women to public office. Most of the candidates who are endorsed by Emily’s List are staunchly pro-abortion.

“There is absolutely no reason for any Catholics, especially an order of Catholic sisters, to support such a group,” Starrs added.

While the Catholic Church denounces abortion in all circumstances, the sisters claimed that they made the donation in order to help women in the political process and not to make a political statement about abortion. “Supporting a group that promotes abortion never helps women,” said Judie Brown, president of American Life League.

“We would expect both the Archdiocese of Detroit and the religious superiors of the Immaculate Heart of Mary sisters to address this scandalous action immediately,” said Brown.
