Pro-Life Action of Oregon is gratified that people of conscience will no longer be donating to the homeless newspaper, Street Roots. The paper publishes a guidebook of community resources. Planned Parenthood is one of those resources, under ‘health care.’
Faced with losing $5,000, the paper opted to keep its Planned Parenthood listing, which includes street maps to its locations. Now that is dedication to the Culture of Death if we ever saw it!
Street Roots’ action, therefore, is immoral! They prefer to be “politically correct,” siding with the Abortion Lobby rather than with Catholic social teachings which compel Catholics to feed and clothe the poor! This is where the Left is abandoning the poor!
Pro-Life Action of Oregon reported on this controversy in December 2009, ‘Local CCHD Grantee Refers Homeless to Planned Parenthood.’
We thank Matt Cato, director of the Respect Life Office, for working on this.
Pro-lifers in Oregon will continue to work to turn the tide in favor of the Culture of Life and against those who support the largest abortion chain in the country.
We look forward to the day when Street Roots removes their promotion of Planned Parenthood from their guidebook. It’s the simplest solution. If they want Catholics in Oregon to donate they must disengage from the Culture of Death.
The Talk of the Town on the Internet
A free Portland rag, ‘The Portland Mercury,’ also posted a story. However, proceed with caution: it’s vile. Just know that we investigated them and so has Life Decisions Intl.: the editor is on record as publishing “we love abortion” in support of PP.
