Omaha: archbishop rallies opposition to Planned Parenthood clinic

Catholic World News - July 28, 2010

Archbishop George Lucas of Omaha has called the faithful to organize in opposition to the opening of a new Planned Parenthood clinic in the Nebraska city. “Make your voice heard in opposition to the efforts of Planned Parenthood to expand the culture of violence and death in Omaha,” the archbishop exhorted his people. At a time when urban leaders are calling for efforts to curb violence, he said, it is “ironic that Planned Parenthood is now proposing to increase the possibility of violent attacks on innocent human life, attacks that are no less harmful to the life of our community even though they remain largely hidden from view.”
