Expose the Lies
One hour of research
The Catholic hierarchy works in the US to influence public policy in the areas of reproductive health and rights. Its allies include such conservative groups as Priests for Life, the American Life League and others, some so militantly conservative that even the church keeps its distance. These organizations offer few real programs and flout the laws governing the political activities of tax-exempt organizations.
Your gift will buy one hour of research on the enemies of choice. CFFC publishes OPPOSITION NOTES, a new series of investigative fact sheets on those who oppose women’s rights and reproductive health. The current series has already reported on the activities, strategy and finances of Priests for Life, the American Life League, and Youth Defence; more reports are planned. Earlier reports explored the US based Culture of Life Foundation and the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, and European organizations including the World Youth Alliance, Opus Dei, and the Catholic Action Group. We share our findings with our colleagues, public policy makers, opinion leaders and the media. Media outreach is especially important since in an effort to achieve balance in reporting, reporters find these opposition groups only too willing to serve as sources of non-facts and antichoice opinion. Our research disproves the credibility of these self-appointed authorities.
