News site decries Canadian bishops’ ‘whitewash’ of agency’s support of pro-abortion groups
July 01, 2009
LifeSiteNews has responded to a recent report by two Canadian bishops on the funding of pro-abortion organizations by the nation’s Catholic relief agency, Development & Peace.
“We at LSN had every reason to believe that when presented with the facts, the bishops of Canada would be thankful and divert their much-needed development funds to groups more worthy of such funding in the developing world,” said John-Henry Westen and Steve Jalsevac. “If the Development & Peace problem is however denied and not corrected, then yes, there will be ‘suspicion, scandal and division in the Church’-- not because of our reports, but because our information was not welcomed as a service to the Church and not acted upon.”
