CCHD And Planned Parenthood - Both With Ties To SEIU

Planned Parenthood and the Service Employees' International Union have some interesting ties.  For instance, PP of Oregon voted to unionize under SEIU.  That article intimates that other PP affiliates may consider unionizing with the SEIU.  One might wonder why Planned Parenthood employees might be motivated to unionize.  There have been no scandalous complaints regarding wages or other such matters (at least, none that have been allowed to make the news).  Another tie between the two organizations might explain matters a bit.  Kirk Adams, SEIU's International Executive Vice President and Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, are husband and wife.

Prior to her tenure at Planned Parenthood, Richards was president of America Votes, a coalition of progressive organizations to elect progressive candidates (including the Messiah Most Miserable).  Andy Stern, a past president of SEIU, was a driving force behind its founding.  That's another significant SEIU/Planned Parenthood tie.  I'd like to point out now that while he was at SEIU, Stern had an assistant named Tom Chabolla.  He still serves in that capacity to the current SEIU president.

John Sweeney, Oct 2008

Here is a sketch of Kirk Adam's professional career.  As you read it, you'll notice that he went back and forth between SEIU and the AFL-CIO.  Someone else did that, too.  Remember John Sweeney?  He was president of SEIU, then moved on to be president of the AFL-CIO.  He's also quite chummy with Cardinal McCarrick of Washington, DC.  In 2002, Sweeney and his wife, along with the Cardinal, were co-chairs at the annual Catholic Charities gala.  Several months later, Cardinal McCarrick honored Sweeney at a Mass at St Mary's Church in DC, just outside Chinatown.  Because Sweeney supported abortion and gay rights, I led pickets of both events.   Last February, Sweeney received the Medal of Freedom from the Messiah Most Miserable himself.  Perhaps the picture of Sweeney to the right sheds some light as to why Obama might have been so inclined to honor Sweeney.

So what does this have to do with the Catholic Church?  More than one might think.  For instance, prior to his present position, Chabolla served as Associate Director of Programs for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.  John Sweeney is a consultant for the USCCB's Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, which oversees the CCHD.

So the CCHD seems to have in common with Planned Parenthood a purpose to further the leftist aims of the SEIU, AFL-CIO and other organizations: aims to normalize baby-murder, sodomy, and the usurpation of God's role in our lives by an increasingly atheistic government. 

Please consider these reasons sufficient to boycott your next CCHD collection.
