"Catholics for a Free Choice" certainly is a misnomer. The members may be former Catholics or would-be Catholics, but they certainly are not Catholics. The Catholic Church is not a democracy or a pick-what-you-like cafeteria, but is a teaching organization formed to pass on the teachings of Christ, which are based on The Ten Commandments.

One of the commandments says Thou Shalt Not Kill. In the context of "choice", Thou Shalt Not Kill means what it says. Breaking the commandment or brazenly advocating that it not be kept, showing no remorse, not going to confession with an intent to amend ones life... is hardly the behavior of a Catholic in good standing.

CFaFC is more than disingenuous using its name. It is misleading, presumptuous, and highly disrespectful to the Catholic Church and everything for which it stands.

As you can see from pmbeaulieu's 5 star rating, this organization claims to be Catholic based but is in every way, shape and form, an anti-Catholic organization. No one has a God given right to choose to end their pregnancy by killing their unborn child. I will continue to pray for a change of heart for anyone affiliated with this organization.

Catholics for choice is one of the most effective anti-catholic organizations on the scene today. This charity is doing everything possible to support catholic access to tax funded abortions through 6 months, tax funded contraception for catholics, and to undermine catholic teachings.
