Catholic group questioned over funding

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is funding an international organization that apparently violates the church’s beliefs.

At present, the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference is struggling with the Obama administration over the Health and Human Services mandate that insurance exchanges provide free contraceptives, the “morning-after” pill, and sterilization.

John-Henry Westen of LifeSiteNews says the church opposes contraception and abortion — but he says official records indicate that the largest donation given by CRS was to an organization called CARE that promotes “family-planning” initiatives in underdeveloped countries.

“The grant was $5.3 million to CARE [which] is an organization that is actually a major advocate of contraception,” says Westen. “They say right on their website that one of their policies is to bring contraception, as they say, ‘to people’s doorsteps.'”
