Reproductive freedom is a euphemism for child murder. Being “pro-choice” means being pro-abortion and ignores the choice of the innocent unborn child being killed. Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with parenthood.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a well thought out euphemism for oppression since the organization is selective in its definition of liberty, wants “to force Catholic charities to provide contraception and abortions for illegal immigrants in their care” based on the redefinition of “healthcare.”
“The ACLU is demanding government records detailing reproductive healthcare policies for immigrant children and teens in shelters operated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The USCCB has been contracted by the federal government to care for the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing into the U.S.
“The group claims that the USCCB has been denying reproductive care for immigrants based on its religious doctrines and that by doing so the organization is breaking the rules of its contract with the federal government to provide necessary healthcare for immigrants.”
Being pregnant isn’t an illness. Killing unborn babies is not like removing a tumor or an infected appendix.
This action by the ACLU drips blood red with irony. Immigrants from south of the border want to come to the United States so their children can be born here so they can be automatic citizens!
If the ACLU is so concerned about illegal immigrants having the freedom to kill their unborn babies, let the organization cough up a few million bucks from its horde of cash and donate to the bloody business. In 2013, the ACLU hauled in more than $68 million in donations. Surely it can spare a few millions.
As usual, the ACLU appeals to the fictional constitutional doctrine of the “separation of church and state” in attempt to make its case.
Brigitte Amiri, a senior staff attorney at ACLU told The Washington Times that the “group is concerned that by accepting federal money to care for immigrants and then denying them reproductive healthcare the USCCB may be in violation of the Constitutional separation of Church and state.”
Ms. Amiri needs to go back to law school or at least review her notes from her constitutional law class. The First Amendment is very clear: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Forcing a Catholic charity to perform murder would not only violate the sixth commandment – “You shall not murder” — but it would prohibit the church from exercising its religion freely.
Why is the ACLU going after Catholic charities when Planned Parenthood has “been caught multiple times putting minors in harm’s way by refusing to report rape and child abuse and have been found guilty in double-billing taxpayers for ‘services’ they perform, yet they still receive over $1.4 million per day in taxpayer dollar,” said Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America”?
The ACLU needs to be changed to ACSLU: American Civil Selective Liberties Union.
