Who Are 'Catholics for a Free Choice'?

.Pro-abortion Group Has Benefited from Pornography

Copyright © 1993 Diane S. Dew

Published in ALL About Issues, Sept/Oct 1993

Founded in 1972, Catholics For a Free Choice, a nominally Catholic, pro-abortion organization, has an annual budget of $900,000, and claims 8,000 members. According to the Encyclopedia of Associations, Catholics For a Free Choice (CFFC) is an association of "Catholics within the Roman Catholic Church who support the right to legal reproductive health care, especially to family planning and abortion." Its goal, according to the Encyclopedia entry, is to "preserve the right of women's choices in childbearing and child rearing"; it "advocates social and economic programs for women, families and children," by engaging in "public education on being Catholic and pro-choice." ...

Funded by Pornography
According to records filed with the IRS, Catholics For a Free Choice, of Washington, DC, has received thousands of dollars from the Playboy Foundation. (Other recipients of Playboy funds include the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, and groups advocating population control, homosexual rights, environmentalism, disarmament, and the repeal of marijuana laws.)

Daniel C. Maguire, professor of moral theology at Marquette University, is on CFFC's board of directors. He has written numerous pamphlets, articles and books promoting abortion, euthanasia and homosexuality. One, in its Spanish translation, even "got an imprimatur, unsolicited by me," he boasted.

In an article published in CFFC's Conscience magazine (May/June 1990), Maguire approved of abortion "as a backup for contraceptive failure." If an individual can find five or six experts "to approve of a liberal dissenting view, the decision to abort may be morally justified," he wrote in a New York Times editorial reprinted in Conscience (Jan./Feb. 1990). What's right for one may not be right for all, he said, claiming that "there is no one `Catholic' position."

"Public political figures and legislators should not impose their private moral view on a pluralistic society," he said. "Catholic politicians ... may freely support Roe v. Wade ... with good reasons and good authority.

"Within certain limits, the Catholic position has always been pro-choice.

"Thus, a legislator who personally finds abortion always immoral may support the Roe v. Wade decision," he wrote in Conscience (May/June 1990).

Maguire, who teaches several freshman sections of "Theology and Morals" at Marquette, has been neither excommunicated nor removed from his tenured position -- although the Vatican issued a 49-page document in September 1990 charging universities to be more accountable for what they teach. Bishops have a "right and a duty," the document states, "to watch over" universities in their dioceses.

Canon Law imposes strict standards of conduct requiring "correct doctrine and integrity of life" upon those teaching in Catholic institutions (Canon 803, Sect. 2, and Canon 804, Sect. 2), and states that those who fall short "need to be removed" (Canon 810, Sect. 1). It is the bishop's responsibility to watch over "even those schools which have been established or are being directed by members of religious institutions ..." (Canon 808, Sect. 1; Canon 805).

The New Testament also charges those in authority to deal with doctrinal error before it spreads (1 Timothy 6:3-5; Titus 3:10-11).

In "Abortion: A Guide to Making Ethical Choices," Dan and Marjorie Maguire write that abortion is justified even for the loss of a job, or because of a marriage failure. "A responsible abortion can be the proper response to irresponsible sex," they say

"There is no clear Biblical teaching prohibiting abortion," they claim. "... no one knows God's mind." It all depends on how you look at it, they said; ethics are adjustable, depending on your circumstances. "... having a baby can be just as selfish, in the bad sense, as an abortion," they say. "You may have a child out of a selfish avoidance of the responsibility to turn your life in new directions."

Even "if you believe that the fetus is a person," they said, "if you also feel that abortion is the most moral choice you can make in your circumstances, trust in God to take care of the fetus. Be assured that God would not condemn ... God is love.

"In the real world, good women choose to have abortions for good reasons and they are still good women after they have the abortion.

"If you are concerned about the possibility that the fetus might experience pain you need to balance that concern ... Physical and emotional pain occur in all our lives. It is not the determining fact in making a moral decision about abortion or anything else."

Better to kill your unborn child than "ignore the needs and rights of other persons, your husband and children," the Maguires say. Besides, the "possibility" that the fetus might be a person, they reason, pales in light of the fact that you definitely are. "Think about the relative value of your life versus that of the fetus.... many good religious people believe that the woman has to welcome the life in her womb and consent to the pregnancy, before God considers it a human person ... when the woman consents to the pregnancy ... God then infuses a soul into the body." (So does the child of a retarded woman, or one with bitter hatred, never become a person? Even at age 21?)

"Follow your conscience"?

"You are not guilty of sin if you follow your conscience," the Maguires write.

But what about someone who does not guard or "keep" his or her conscience (Heb. 9:14; 1 Pet. 3:16), who, failing to respond to the Holy Spirit's guidance, allows his conscience to become "seared" (1 Tim. 4:2)? The Bible speaks of a "weak conscience" (1 Cor. 8:7); a "wounded conscience" (1 Cor. 8:12); a "good" and "perfect" conscience (Heb. 9:9; Heb. 13:18; 1 Pet. 3:21; 1 Tim. 1:5, 19); a "clear" (blameless) conscience (Acts 24:16; 1 Tim. 3:9) and a conscience that is "evil" or defiled (Tit. 1:15).

Still, ads for CFFC's magazine, Conscience, say: "Follow your conscience."

One of CFFC's pamphlets, available at many libraries, is Maguire's "Reflections of a Catholic Theologian on Visiting an Abortion Clinic." He described pro-life picketers as mostly men-a violent, "scary lot," "dripping with hatred," who "attempt to play on guilt to recruit these women in their campaign." He referred to the baby involved in abortion as "aborted matter," a "pre-personal embryo."

"Catholic moral theology is in grave default on this issue," Maguire says; "... abortion can be the least violent option..."

Some donations received by CFFC are earmarked specifically to pay for these publications. In 1991, the R.S. Clark Foundation gave $47,000 "for research, production and dissemination of a series of fact sheet/booklets on the role of the Catholic Church in shaping public policy on family planning services and availability of contraception."

Another $10,000 was "for publication of the booklet, Protecting Access to Health Care for Women-A Guide to Laws Prohibiting Violence and Interference at Clinics." The same foundation also gave at least $40,000 in 1991 to NOW's Legal Defense Education Fund specifically "for work on clinic harassment lawsuits and provision of legal support and technical assistance on other reproductive rights issues to pro-choice groups around the country."

These foundations have all seen fit to fund opposition to the Catholic Church -- ostensibly within the Catholic Church -- in an effort to undermine the Church's pro-life teaching.

Catholics For a Free Choice is well funded in its crusade to convince Catholics in particular and the public in general that abortion is a moral choice.

The facts in this article were obtained directly from public records and from the publications of Catholics for a Free Choice.

CFFC in Latin America
CFFC's web site states: "CFFC has been an international organization since 1987 when we initiated program work in Latin America with local colleagues and founded Católicas por el Derecho a Decidir (CDD—Latin America). Now an autonomous organization, CDD—Latin America, with a regional office in Córdoba, Argentina, the group has expanded its dynamic presence in the region to include CFFC partner organizations in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Peru and Colombia." CFFC shares its web space with CDD—Latin America.
