Diocesan official: Planned Parenthood employee cannot work for Catholic school
February 20, 2014
A Catholic high school in Montana is not renewing the contract of a coach who works for Planned Parenthood, the Associated Press reported.
“Certainly being employed by Planned Parenthood, an organization that by its nature violates Catholic moral teaching by providing abortions, is not being a good role model to the children attending Catholic schools,” said Patrick Haggerty, superintendent of schools of the Diocese of Great Falls - Billings.
“I absolutely love the work. I have amazing coworkers,” Tarn Duff, the coach, said of her work at Planned Parenthood. “I believe everyone has a choice to decide what they’re going to do with their body. Planned Parenthood advocates for equal rights.”

PP advocates for equal rights only for those who have survived the first nine months of life. Before that they are fair game for their monstrous appetite for death and money.
