308 million - NOT 57 million!

Dear Father Hennelly, Msgr. Duncan, Father Lonergan, and Father Davis,

Reviewing lists maintained by One More Soul and Pharmacists for Life International, I can only find a handful of pharmacies - across the country - which do NOT sell contraceptives, including so-called "contraceptives" that can act as abortifacients.   Such poisons appear to be as routine at pharmacies, as coffee is at convenience stores. 

The St Clare Pharmacy is the only Bucks County pharmacy believed to NOT sell abortifacients and contraceptives.  So, it is disheartening to see that providers of contraceptives/abortifacients continue to be advertised in your parish bulletins:

Fathers and Monsignor - you certainly would not permit ads for Planned Parenthood, which is thought to be the nation's "leading" provider of abortions.  While estimates of U.S. abortions since 1973 frequently hover around 57 million (cf, www.numberofabortions.com/), Pharmacists for Life International indicates a more accurate estimate to be 308 million (when chemical and mechanical means are properly counted).  Is permitting an ad from a pharnacy provider of contraceptives and abortifacients that different from a Planned Parenthood ad? 

It is my belief that the inclusion of such ads contributes to the well documented Catholic confusion about the sinfulness of contraceptives/abortifacients, as well as the failure to appreciate the draconian nature of the HHS mandate.



Sincerely,

The Beatitudes from "Jesus of Nazareth"

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!

And yup, that's me!
