Oregon: Catholic agency withdraws from United Way over Planned Parenthood
Kudos to Archbishop John Vlazny for standing up for life!
At the direction of Archbishop John Vlazny of Portland, Catholic Community Services has withdrawn from United Way of Lane County because of United Way’s funding of Planned Parenthood. The decision will cost Catholic Community Services 4% of its budget.
Two other Catholic agencies– PeaceHealth and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul– receive funding from United Way of Lane County. Archdiocesan spokesman Bud Bunce said both agencies are expected to withdraw from United Way as well.
