Note to Canadian Catholic Bishops Regarding Development and Peace

As I reported yesterday, a Quebec Labour Union-- the CSN of Metropolitan Montreal-- has come out in defense of Development and Peace.

The union says that Development and Peace has been attacked by "anti-choice" groups.

Well, shouldn't Development and Peace be considered "anti-choice"?

How is it that a union that opposes human rights for unborn children feels comfortable in defending Development and Peace?

It sounds like Development and Peace is not committed to the rights of unborn children.

How is this compatible with Catholic teaching?

Canadian bishops: you are known by the company you keep. If you want Development and Peace, your baby, to be known as a Catholic organization, then it should act like one. It should be standing up for the unborn explicitly.

And if it's not, then it makes us wonder how serious the bishops are in upholding the right to life.
