Bishops’ agency caught peddling contraception — again
WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – A new report by the Lepanto Institute reveals that Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the U.S. bishops’ charitable arm, is “knowingly and willingly implementing a project in at least four African countries that was created specifically for — and aimed directly at — the spread of contraception.”
CRS claims it doesn’t promote condom use because another program partner does it. But it’s CRS’ responsibility to ensure all facets of the program, including teaching the use of contraception, is carried out.
In part five of a series of reports on CRS projects, Lepanto Institute President Michael Hichborn shows that the agency is helping to implement a United Nations project called Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-Free, Mentored and Safe women (DREAMS) in at least four African countries — and that CRS was required to facilitate the project’s core package, which includes the promotion of contraception to girls.
Project documents show that CRS, either directly or indirectly, was required to ensure that “all adolescent girls and young women who are enrolled in the DREAMS partnership receive all services,” including contraception. Furthermore, according to a strategy document, the program forbids the implementation of abstinence-only sex education.
The Church teaches that contraception is intrinsically evil (2370), violating natural law by unnaturally separating the unitive and procreative meanings of sexual love.
