New York, NY – 5-27-2013 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – It was revealed by the New York Times that the Archdiocese of New York is paying for contraception and abortions for its unionized employees.
The stunning hypocrisy of Cardinal Dolan at the same time he is supposedly leading the fight for religious freedom, to also already be paying for contraception for thousands of Archdiocese employees, is a betrayal of every person who has honestly worked for religious freedom.
It is our sincere hope that Cardinal Dolan or some close representative of his office can clarify their position in this matter. It is hard to imagine that even as corrupt as the NY Times is, that they would misrepresent the facts involving this most critical issue to the Catholic Church.
The Cardinal’s apparent cold-hearted indifference to the children in the womb, whose abortions he is paying for, is a sickening reminder of how many Catholic Bishops have betrayed children in the last few decades.
It appears the abuse of children in the Catholic Church is continuing – is it now even being paid for by Cardinal Dolan and the Archdiocese of New York? The Catholic Church has paid millions of dollars in damages for alleged claims (many unproven) of sexual abuse of children; now the government is forcing the Church to pay for the ultimate child abuse, abortion.
