Is Sr. Carol Keehan pro-abort? February 14, 2012Posted by tantamergo in Abortion, Basics, disaster, General Catholic, religious, sadness, scandals, sickness, Society.
There is a post on a local pro-life website (not local here, in Dallas) that makes the claim, or strongly asks if, Sr. Carol Keehan, head of the Catholic Health Association, close associate of President Obama, and routine participant in what Fr. Z describes as the “magisterium of nuns,” (she’s actually not a nun, she is a female religious), is pro-abort. Sr. Keehan was apparently sent a letter recently from a pro-abort group thanking her for once again ignoring the guidance of the bishops and the Doctrine of the Faith and supporting the Obama Administration, this time on their noxious contraceptive “mandate.”
What is so disturbing about Sister Keehan’s response to this email from a clearly pro-abortion group is that the email thanks Sister Keehan for supporting abortion, standing against the Bishops, and calling Sister an inspiration to those in the pro-abortion community. Her only response is “thank you so much.”The email from the pro-abortion group offers to make a donation to the Catholic Health Association, but Sister Keehan recommends that this pro-abortion group give the money instead specifically to a “poor woman” not a poor person. We all know full well that a pro-abortion group gives money to poor women for only one thing – abortions.When an email was sent to Sister Keehan saying the donation would be put into a fund for “reproductive services”, a euphemism for abortions, Sister Keehan did not object.Sister Keehan’s response to the alleged pro-abortion group does not deny her being considered “a hero for choice”. Nowhere did it deny that she was in opposition to the Bishops of her Church.
