WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Life League executive director Shaun Kenney announced a new campaign to investigate whether young mothers will be referred for abortions by Caritas Christi, the Boston Archdiocese-affiliated healthcare provider, after its joint venture with CeltiCare goes into effect July 1.
"Caritas Christi and the Archdiocese of Boston have given reassurances that no Catholic hospitals will make abortion referrals," stated Kenney. "After July 1, we will put that guarantee to the test."
Organizations such as Live Action Films and other pro-life organizations have successfully exposed unsafe and illegal healthcare practices at abortion facilities all over the United States. Such practices include covering up child rape, committing abortions on minors without the required parental consent or notification and intentionally altering legal forms in order to commit abortions.
If Archdiocese-affiliated Caritas Christi is indeed making referrals for -- or participating in -- activities incompatible with its Catholic identity, the financially-strapped healthcare system could set a dangerous new precedent for Catholic institutions around the country.
"American Life League and its associates will not be satisfied with a policy that provides degrees of separation between the mother and an abortion business," said Kenney. "Catholics within the Archdiocese of Boston should be told the truth."
Under Cardinal Sean O'Malley's leadership, Caritas Christi and the Archdiocese of Boston have been under intense scrutiny due to the abortion scandal that has rocked the Catholic and pro-life communities
