The American Life League, who has led the charge against the arrangement, told LifeSiteNews.com today that the Archdiocese's explanation was "absolutely not" acceptable.
"I find it extremely tragic that the Cardinal cannot stand up and simply say that it's unacceptable under any circumstance to enter into any kind of business relationship with a company that's involved in sterilization, contraception, and abortion," said American Life League president Judie Brown. "I don't understand what's going on."
"I think at the end of the day this is about money," she continued. "Caritas Christi has been in financial trouble for a long time, and the Cardinal is trying to massage the rules in order to allow this to go forward, and I think we are succumbing to the world when the Church does things like this, and it's bad."
To reiterate, the Cardinal and Caritas are leaving out glaring omissions in their publicity stunts.
CeltiCare is insurance provider who will complete the abortion transactions. Caritas owns 49% of Celticare.
Caritas signed the contract to provide abortions, has stated numerous times in the public square - and has given the Commonwealth promises in writing that they will provide abortions and other services, has asked abortionists to provide those abortions in return for payment for those abortion services, will refer women to abortion services.
The Cardinal and Caritas is deliberately misleading the public in this important distinction.
