CCHD Supporters BUSTED – In League With Planned Parenthood!

Rockford, Il – ( – 6-13-2013 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – A group called Faith In Public Life has issued a report titled, Be Not Afraid” that is in favor of the Catholic Campaign For Human Development to continue to partner with pro-abortion groups.

Michael Hichborn of the American Life League has discovered that the Faith In Public Life is not an impartial observer.  In fact, it is an organization whose members promote and encourage the spread of the killing of babies by abortion.

As reported by America magazine:

“Michael Hichborn, director of Defend the Faith for the American Life League and a leader of the Reform CCHD Now effort, rejected the allegations of McCarthyism and guilt by association tactics included in the Faith in Public Life report as “entirely baseless.” Noting that Faith in Public Life CEO Rev. Jennifer Butler was a panelist at a 2008 Planned Parenthood discussion of how pro-choice clergy could “make social change in support of reproductive justice in communities across the country,” Hichborn said, “I find it ironic that it is her organization that is rushing to defend CCHD.” The violations Reform CCHD Now has tracked since 2009 are the result of the “direct actions” of grantees, he said. “This is not guilt by association,” Hichborn said. “Every violation we have documented is by the organization itself or by a coalition that [a grantee] is a direct member of and that is a violation CCHD guidelines.”

The report issued by Faith In Public Life titled “Be Not Afraid” is simply a tool of the abortion lobby to encourage Catholic funding for pro-abortion groups.

Please email your own Bishop and the director of the Catholic Campaign For Human Development ( Ralph McCloud ) and ask them not to be fooled by a report issued by a pro-abortion group that is in league with the nation’s number one killer of babies – Planned Parenthood.

    • Great Catch? Ralph McCloud–who we’re suppose to tattle to–is in cahoots with the Pro-Abortion folks, too!

      He help run the camapign for BIG pro-abort candidate who fillibustered Life Protection Bill that just passed in Texas!

  1. The pro-aborts love money, no wonder they want CCHD dollars to keep flowing.

    How CCHD responds to this revelation will tell us a lot about them.

    Mr. McCloud were waiting for a response.

    • Interesting point, what is CCHD’s take on this report? The report is calling for CCHD to continue to fund abortion groups. Has CCHD said they will or will not give money to the pro-aborts?

  2. The author of the new CCHD report is John Gehring, a former media relations officer for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Gehring last year tried to convince news reporters that the Catholic bishops’ “Fortnight for Freedom” was a partisan effort to impact the 2012 presidential election. In fact, the Fortnight rallied support for the religious freedom of Catholic colleges, hospitals and other apostolates — and it will be repeated this month in a non-election year.

    Also listed among the report’s supporters is Stephen Schneck, director of the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at The Catholic University of America, a former member of the board of directors of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, and a member of Catholics for Obama in 2012.

    The report cites Rev. Bryan Massingale, theology professor at Marquette University, whose research interests include “liberation theologies” and who has reportedly been coy about his views on homosexuality.

  3. St. Augustine said: “God had one Son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering.”

    Be ready for the persecution my friends, and the worse persecution will come from so-called liberal Catholics. The reality is they do support abortion, homosexuality, and contraception and when you support these evils you can tolerate no opposition.

  4. God created all of us equal. He does not discriminate in color, sex, nor ability. He did not set down His commandments for only select groups but for all of His children. Murder is the same for a fetus, an enemy, an elder… is still murder to terminate the life.

    Down through the ages different leaders have wanted a pure race……Jews were killed, Indians were killed and so on. These are still God’s children….it is still wrong.
