Hi, guys —

  • Is buying at places who support and possibly fund Planned Parenthood a grave sin?

My priest said it wasn't, because Planned Parenthood is also about having kids, not only preventing births and if the companies donate to other charities, it is not a sin.

  • I know this would be remote mediate material cooperation with sin, but is it really a sin or is my priest right?

Jane

Paul replied:

Dear Jane,

There is usually no guilt with remote material cooperation of sin.

You must not be intending to support Planned Parenthood by your patronage of the place that supports them, however, if there is a reasonable alternative to this establishment by choosing to shop at a similar place nearby, that would be advisable.

Dear Jane,

You said your priest said:
My priest said it wasn't, because Planned Parenthood is also about having kids, not only preventing births . . .

Planned Parenthood is not about having kids; it's about killing kids and your priest should know better. Ask him to speak to one of his colleagues, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, and see if Fr. Frank believes Planned Parenthood is about having kids. It is not! It is about aborting live children while they are still in their mother's womb.

Pro-Abortion people are anti-choice. They are anti-choice because the male or female fetus in the mother's womb never is able to make the choices you and I can make.

Planned Parenthood is an organization that is all about encouraging women of all ages who are under duress to kill new life. Period!

Hope this helps,

Mike
