Nebraska bishop: No communion for Planned Parenthood supporters

Support for the reproductive health care provider Planned Parenthood continues to be a contentious issue for Catholic groups and bishops.

According to Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska, Catholic lawmakers who support Planned Parenthood should be denied Communion “because they’ve defected from the Church’s faith.”

“It advocates contraception,” Bruskewitz told LifeSiteNews. “In its origins, from Margaret Sanger, it concentrates on racism. It believes certain races are inferior. It has certainly a eugenic aspect to it – extermination of people who are considered unfit to live, a la Nazis.”

“And of course abortion is an abominable crime,” he continued. “The Second Vatican Council is very clear about that. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion supplier, business, and purveyor, in the United States.”

The American Life League called for 62 Catholic members of the House of Representatives who voted against defunding Planned Parenthood to be excommunicated from the Church.

Republicans introduced legislation in February that would eliminate all $327 million in funding for Title X, a family planning program that began 40 years ago under President Richard Nixon. And while Planned Parenthood receives millions of dollars from the program, Title X funds cannot be used for abortion services.

    Planned parenthood has the potential to reduce the number of children from lower income parents. Lower income parents tend to have less education, therefore are more easily manipulated. Children of those parents are easier for paedophiles to prey upon.

    This is the outcome the catholic church desires, minus being caught slipping, tripping and accidentally on purpose sticking their dicks in childrens ass’s.

    That is why the catholic church opposes planned parenthood. To get access to more children to rape.

    I was wondering when the paedophiles would feel confident enough again to fight back.

    Currently there is a VERY strong push against abortion, women’s rights, etc. from just about ALL right wing groups in the USA. Planned Parenthood, which does much more than just abortions is under attack in Congress, and from every right wing publication, pundit, “news” organization, and “family” group.

    The Roman Catholic Church has aligned itself with the very same folks that opposed Catholic schools, a Catholic President, and everyone else who also opposes equality for all citizens — including the KKK, and various “black” churches who seem to have forgotten they might well be “next in line”.

    This Jesus fellow they go on and on about seems to hate lots of different folks — not just women.

    What you point out, Tina, is as true as it is ironic, sad and pathetic.

    @ tinagrrl,

    I am not really suprised.

    Hate is a powerful unifer for the hateful. This case proves that point.
