Domine, da mihi hanc aquam!: Archbishop Aymond calls for Planned Parenthood Boy...

Domine, da mihi hanc aquam!: Archbishop Aymond calls for Planned Parenthood Boy...: Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans published the following letter in the Clarion-Herald: Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ...

The specific excerpt:


We cannot be silent in view of the grave injustice presented by the abortions that will be performed at the proposed Planned Parenthood facility. The archdiocese is obliged to remind every person and organization involved in the acquisition, preparation and construction of this or any abortion facility that they are cooperating with the evil that will take place there. For this reason, the archdiocese, including its churches, schools, apartments for the elderly and nursing homes, will strive in its privately funded work not to enter into business relationships with any person or organization that participates in actions that are essential to making this abortion facility a reality.

This policy applies to all businesses, regardless of religious affiliation or non-affiliation. Our fidelity to Church teaching and our conscience necessitates this stance.

There is no justification, including economic hardship that will make a direct or indirect relationship with Planned Parenthood, or any abortion provider, acceptable. Additionally, affiliation or support of Planned Parenthood by Catholics is a matter of serious scandal.
