Should Union Members Be Forced To Fund Planned Parenthood?

Yes, at least according to Bishop Frank Dewane, chairman of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, who expressed his disappointment in the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, Janus v. AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees).

Hailed across the country by all pro-life groups and many Christian groups, the Court’s ruling that a government employee may not be required to pay fees to support unions, many of which promote the killing of the unborn child, or other immoral causes.

As reported by lifesitenews.com, “Despite public sector unions’ unabashed political and financial support for abortion, same-sex ‘marriage,’ and transgenderism, the USCCB sided with the union and against the free speech rights of the complainant.”

On the other hand, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, supports the decision that the individual union member cannot be forced by the union leadership in its efforts to keep the killing machine in place.  The Bishop states: “In this regard then, unions should not expect the unquestioning support of the Church, when their objectives are contrary to the duties of

Bishop Thomas Paprocki    religion and morality.

“Today a number of unions actively promote abortion rights.  Three of the nation’s biggest unions, including AFSCME, contributed $435,000 to the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, in 2014.  

“Forcing public employees to subsidize unions that promote such immoral policies and activities is just not right.  

“It is encouraging  that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME upholds the right to be free from coercion in speech.

“No longer will public sector employees be required to pay mandatory dues to support unions that promote abortion and other political issues with which they disagree.”

“God’s sign is simplicity. God’s sign is the baby. God’s sign is that He makes Himself small for us. This is how He reigns. He does not come with power and outward splendor. He comes as a baby – defenseless and in need of our help … He asks for our love: so He makes Himself a child.”

Texas abortion law prevails, but society fails Kate Cox – Fred H. Summe

Kate Cox filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas, requesting a temporary block on the state’s abortion ban. Tragically, her about 20-week-old child had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 (Ed­ward’s Syndrome), a condition which causes delay in the development of the unborn baby, a severe disability that may cause death before birth, or within … the first few years of life.
