Great news from the bishops of North Dakota. I don’t recall ever seeing this type of language in Canada. Then again, it would have forbidden people from donating to Development and Peace:
“All human life is sacred and must be protected. This is why we should not support or endorse individuals and organizations that provide, promote, or advocate for abortion, contraception, reproductive rights/‘family planning,’ or embryonic stem cell research,” wrote the bishops.
Because marriage is “the foundation of the family and, therefore, essential to the common good,” Catholics also should be sure not to support “individuals and organizations that seek to redeﬁne marriage or whose activities devalue its importance.”
