Pro-life leaders react to US Bishops agency's funding of pro-abortion groups

23 July 2013

CRS is been funding two leading pro-abortion organisations

Pro-life leaders are expressing outrage after revealed that Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the US Catholic bishops' overseas aid agency, is funding two leading pro-abortion organisations, CARE and Population Services International (PSI).

John Smeaton, SPUC's chief executive commented: "Firstly, CARE and PSI's knowledge that, year after year, CRS will give them millions of dollars for ostensibly ethical projects enables them to budget and plan ahead for their unethical activities.

"Secondly, receiving millions from CRS helps whitewash their reputations in the wider world and entrenches their presence in the countries where they operate.

"Lastly, there are legions of pro-life/pro-family Catholic initiatives which desperately need funding, such as MaterCare International, the Billings Ovulation Method and Culture of Life Africa. CRS' millions for CARE and PSI should be given to them instead." [, 19 July]
