More evidence that Canadian bishops' office involved in abortion; agency denies charge

March 31, 2009

The Canadian bishops' Development and Peace (D&P) office has released a statement defending itself against charges that it has provided funding for pro-abortion activist groups in Latin America. "Nothing could be further from the truth," insists Pat Hogan of the D&P national council. But LifeSite News, which first unearthed evidence of the D&P connections, cites mounting evidence that the office has funded advocacy groups-- and indeed has suspended that funding for Mexican groups mentioned in the LifeSite exposés. LifeSite goes on to connect D&P with groups supporting legal abortion in Haiti, bringing "the total number of confirmed pro-abortion groups funded by D&P to twelve, including five in Mexico, two in Brazil, three in Africa, and two in Haiti."
