Is Sr. Carol Keehan pro-abort? February 14, 2012

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.
You can see the e-mail exchange at the link.  I don’t know if this really establishes whether Sr. Keehan is pro-abort.  It could be a stock, fairly automatic reply, not even reviewing the source.  But in the broader sense, Sr. Keehan has repeatedly and publicly rejected the guidance given by the bishops to all Catholics on a number of matters.  She was instrumental in getting Obamacare passed.  Obamacare has then led to this contraceptive mandate, which Sr. Keehan – given the slightest fig leaf of cover by Obama, with this false “compromise” (in actuality, a doubling down) – has now endorsed.  The mandate includes not only contraception, but also sterilization and abortifacients.  So, on that basis alone, I think it fair to conclude that Sr. Keehan is at least marginally pro-abort.
 
Furthermore, Sr. Keehan frequently winds up on the same side of issues as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and virtually all pro-abort groups.  She is thus in opposition to the bishops and the Church.  So, again, while Sr. Keehan may claim to endorse the Church’s consistent life ethic and rejection of abortion, in practical terms, she is effectively pro-abort.  Just as politicians like Pelosi, Kerry, Sebelius, Cuomo and many others may claim to be “personally opposed” to abortion, in terms of public actions, Keehan closely aligns with the goals of pro-abort groups.
 
Thus, the “magisterium of nuns.”

I play every night that, she Sister Keehan will rot in Hell where she belongs, along with all the other Catholic Hypocrites, The ones who call themselves Catholic but who continue to support abortion and continue to vote for baby killing democrats. The day will come when they will truly see the wrath of God!

Nooo, I don’t think anyone should pray that. No matter how evil their crimes, we can’t wish hell on anyone, no matter how upsetting their actions may be.
