California Bishops Respond to California’s ‘Reproductive Healthcare’ Website

Abortion-Only Website Tantamount to Coercion

In response to the State of California’s release of its new “reproductive healthcare” website, California Catholic Conference Executive Director Kathleen Domingo released the following statement:

“Yesterday, in a dismissive statement, the state of California released its new taxpayer-funded abortion website that is tantamount to coercion for California women. Touted as providing access to “reproductive care,” the new website only provides information on abortion, neglecting the millions of California women needing access to supportive care for cancer screening, fertility issues, prenatal care, childbirth, and a myriad of other healthcare concerns.

“When California families are struggling to pay for gas, afford rent, and put food on the table, promoting the violence of abortion solves none of the urgent problems countless families are facing. As Pope Francis said, “it is not ‘progressive’ to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life.”

“We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern.” – Pope Francis
