More CRS Entanglement With Contraceptives

Rob Gaspar of American Life League wrote of yet another chapter in the sordid CRS/Abortifacient saga.  It seems that the United Nations Population Fund (UNPF) developed a proprietary software (called CHANNEL) to facilitate distribution of contraceptives and abortifacients in Madagascar and other nearby localities.  Some of these areas lacked the electrical infrastructure needed to run the computers housing CHANNEL.  They decided to power them with solar panels.  They set up 33 of these scenarios; 19 of them were funded by - you guessed it! - Catholic Relief Services.

While CRS claims it was using CHANNEL to manage mosquito net distribution, the fact is that UNPF developed CHANNEL with the specific intent of facilitating the spread of baby-killing potions.  Read the ALL article to see the questions that Gaspar asked of John Rivera, CRS's Communications Director.  At the time the ALL article went online, Rivera had yet to respond.

There are many more stones to be overturned, I suspect.  In each case we will catch the worms and bugs scurrying for cover.  Time to defund the CRS.
