OK, I actually had to read this one a couple of times to grasp what I was reading.
Workers at aÂ Catholic charity in Virginia actually provided transportation to and from the clinic and signed the authorization form for the girl to get an abortion.
"There were significant supervisory errors that resulted in a failure to do everything possible to avoid the abortion," said the letter, signed by Bishops Francis X. DiLorenzo of the Richmond diocese; John C. Wester of the Salt Lake City diocese; and Michael P. Driscoll of the Boise, Idaho diocese
Now regardless of which side of the issue you fall on, this whole thing just sounds a bit shady.Â I would expect the Bishops to be flipping out, or condemning the people who helped get the abortion.Â I mean, if this happened at a Planned Parenthood, there would be mobs protesting in the streets.Â But they have sort of quietly chalked it up to "supervisory errors."Â
This is currently being investigated by authorities, because on top of everything else the charity received federal tax dollars (which cannot be used to fund abortions).
Anyone want to bet we learn that this isn't the first time an illegal immigrant has been "helped" to obtain an abortion.Â Maybe I'm being a conspiracy theorist, but something tells me this wasn't a one-time exception.Â
