Family Planning Funds Slashed

Some good news with the Federal Budget...

President Bush's has severely slashed funding for family planning (contraceptives). In 2001 President Bush initiated the Mexico City Policy to stop taxpaying funds from being used to perform or support abortions in other countries. At that time, President Bush froze family planning at $425 million each year. This year, the budget calls for $357 million, a 18% slash in funds.

Let us pray for an end to the use of contraceptives. Since the earliest days of the Catholic Church, our fathers have condemned artificial contraception as an offense against God and the natural law. This was the case with all Christians until the early 1900s when other denominations began to allow them. Thank be to God for guiding the Church and keeping it in the Truth, a promise recorded in scripture (Matthew 16:18).
