"a bold proclamation of the truths about the sacred transmission of human life"

Your Eminences and Your Excellencies,

From Sunday, September 12th till Sunday, September 19th, I contacted 183 Roman Catholic diocese in the United States, requesting

  1. a disassociation of Catholic hospitals from those who prescribe/dispense abortifacients and contraceptives; &
  2. a cessation of pharmacy ads in parish bulletins.

With Respect Life Sunday 2010 being just one week away & your Fall 2010 General Assembly only about one and 1/2 months away, I pray that you will give consideration to this request. I believe it to be particularly supported by the

  1. Vatican's Statement on the ''So-Called Morning After Pill'',
  2. Pope Benedict XVI's address to the International Congress of Catholic Pharmacists,
  3. a review by the Pontifical Academy for Life of "the problem of cooperation in evil",
  4. and the Vatican's Dignitas Personae (See #23, in particular).

I also believe it to be in particular keeping with what Pope Pius XI said in #57 of Casti Connubii.

The inspiring vision for Catholic health care of Northern Virgina's Divine Mercy Care included the DMC Pharmacy, which absolutely refused to market in abortifacients and contraceptives. Lack of financial support led to the closing of the DMC Pharmacy. Acknowledging our own complicities in the advance of the Culture of Death, it would seem particularly appropriate for Catholic parishes throughout our nation to make financial gifts to the noble DMC enterprise.



    As per author Brian Gail, our times absolutely call for "a bold proclamation of the truths about the sacred transmission of human life." That can start with

    • a disassociation of Catholic hospitals from those who prescribe/dispense abortifacients and contraceptives; &
    • a cessation of pharmacy ads in parish bulletins.

    About Me

    I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

    And yup, that's me!
