American Life League: Clock Ticking in Boston Archdiocese Abortion Scandal

WASHINGTON, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Archdiocese of Boston is on track to provide abortion "services" and American Life League is rolling out an aggressive campaign to expose the scandal.

Celticare, the joint venture of archdiocesan Caritas Christi Health Care network and Centene Corp., will join Massachusetts' subsidized health program effective July 1.

Celticare lists abortion, family planning and "reproductive services" on their Web site. Centene and Caritas Christi both said they would ensure access to all services required by the Massachusetts Connector Authority, including "confidential family planning services."

"We will not allow this scandal to go unnoticed," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "The Catholic Church in Boston is set to become a partner in the abortion industry."

Catholic Action League of Massachusetts reports new information on abortion services on Celticare's Web site is "final and conclusive proof" Caritas Christi will participate in abortions.

While the Archdiocese of Boston continues to assert that the matter is under review, Centene Corp. has and continues to state the current plan will become effective July 1.

"Cardinal O'Malley must realize this situation requires his immediate and definitive action," Brown said. "The Cardinal must not permit this scandal to continue. It would be tragic for yet another debacle, caused by misinformation, contradictory statements and shameful cover-ups to besmirch the reputation of the Archdiocese of Boston."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.

What a disgrace, a shame! "Under review"? Everyone who is busy has to, from time to time, shift gears and pay attention to something that wasn't on the plate yesterday.
This is important, a big deal.
This abortion business is clearly where the cash is, but should it be where the Church is? Somehow I don't think so. This smells and the smell isn't good.

Bigger scandals the Boston Archdiocese has not seen.

May the Good Lord and His Blessed Mother help us all.

when does the local 'church' stop being 'The Church'? When does an error turn into apostasy? How do we know when schism begins? Maybe we ARE doing a disservice to the church after all - the Bishop said we were - Maybe 'his coolness' Sean represents a new church, a church where killing babies is OK as long as you feel bad about it, you know in a real pious teary eyed compaaasiionaate maaaannoor.

I need to pray for the Bishop...

Yes, they're still trying to figure out if sound ethically for the Cardinal to hire people to kill children and exploit poor people by performing moral evils upon them.

Three months later - the National Catholic Bioethics Center and the team of luminaries at the Chancery are going over and over it and they just can't find the answers. It's a mystery.

LCIB - yeah - I think you're exactly right. If it's one thing that is completely disingenuous, it is a prolife teary eyed, compassionate abortion providing Capuchin.

Carol McKinley said...

As I've said in other places and I'll repeat here - if he is putting on this kind of teary-eyed compassionate dog and pony show about killing children, while behind closed doors - he is setting up a Capuchin abortion business - the whole dog and pony show about sexual abuse is as reliable as his conduct in this scandal.

We have a serious emergency in the Boston Chancery and we have got to uproot it.
