Canadian Bishops: “Catholics for Choice” is Not Catholic

Canadian Bishops: “Catholics for Choice” is Not Catholic:

"The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has reiterated that the group “Catholics for a Free Choice” is “not Catholic” and “does not represent the teachings or views of the Catholic Church.”"

The small group, originating in the United States and described as “fraudulent” by faithful Catholics, made media headlines in recent weeks by criticizing the Harper government for refusing to push abortion in the G8 maternal healthcare push.

Mainstream media outlets such as Canadian Press, the Montreal Gazette, and the Toronto Sun, all referred to the group as if it were authentically Catholic with headlines such as “Catholic group urges Harper to include abortion, contraception in G8 policy.”

The CCCB recalled that already in 2002 they had denounced “Catholics for a Free Choice” for “usurping the Church’s name” when, in fact, “it is in no way recognized as Catholic.”
