Some Christian Nonprofits Support Abortion, Charity Watchlist Finds:
Christian organizations are among nonprofits that support the abortion industry, especially since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year, according to a “watchlist” that monitors such connections.
“Unfortunately, our research showed that many of these organizations responded to Dobbs by funding abortion,” Hugh Brown, executive vice president of the American Life League, told The Daily Signal.
“In many cases, it was organizations who had never supported abortion before,” Brown said.
He was referring to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the 2022 case in which the Supreme Court overruled Roe and abortion on demand and sent the issue of abortion back to the states to decide.
Christian organizations that support abortion are flagged by Charity Watchlist, an online tool created by the American Life League. Founded in 1979, ALL calls itself the oldest Catholic grassroots pro-life organization.
In a press release, American Life League President Judie Brown said the watchlist was “designed to hold nonprofit organizations to account for the positions they take, especially when it comes to their positions on respect for life, fertility, the nuclear family and the aging.”
ALL categorizes each organization by assigning one of three colors: green, yellow, or red. It has rated about 60 nonprofits so far.
Green means an organization opposes abortion, cloning, and research using aborted fetal body parts. Yellow indicates an organization is “questionable.” Red means an organization supports advocacy, lobbying, and research that ALL doesn’t consider pro-life.
“The ideology of death is one these organizations have no business being involved in. A country that houses organizations that support a culture of death has no future,” Hugh Brown, who is Judie Brown’s son, told The Daily Signal.
Charity Watchlist placed The Salvation Army, a Christian organization, in the red category because it “does not fully condemn abortion” and because it supports birth control and “transgender housing” in Las Vegas. --->READ MORE HERE

Pay as little attention to discouragement as possible. Plough ahead as a steamer does, rough or smooth, rain or shine. To carry your cargo and make port is the point.

Anti-Life Philosophy.
Opposition to abortion comes largely from the Roman Catholic Church. One of the more effective ways of scoring this point is to read from the [attached] List of Organizations Favoring Repeal [of all abortion laws] the names of prestigious national organizations ... and then to challenge your [pro-life debating] opponent to name one nonreligious organization in any of these categories (health, welfare, legal, medical, etc.) that supports their contention that abortion is murder.
National Abortion Rights Action League.[1]
When you scan lists of groups opposing abortion, you find all of them are religious in nature.
Anne Nicol Gaylor, Abortion is a Blessing.[2]
Anti-Religious Bigotry.
The above quotes are two of many attempts by the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and other pro-abort groups to stereotype and pigeonhole the entire pro-life movement.
There is good strategic reasoning behind this blatant bigotry. If NARAL and their contemptible ilk can convince the public that the pro-life movement is very narrow in focus and unrepresentative of the American mainstream by painting it as an organ of an 'unholy alliance' between the Pope and Fundamentalist preachers, they will have won a great psychological victory. They will have successfully tapped into the deep reservoir of residual anti-Catholic and anti-religious bigotry that lurks within the souls of tens of millions of Americans.
To show how one-sided this kind of stereotyping really is, try to imagine the uproar that the Neoliberal media would make if some pro-life leader snottily declared that all abortophiles were nothing but a bunch of sexually perverted, atheist lowlife scum!
An anti-life debater may very well make a statement similar to the above NARAL quote. If this happens, the pro-life debater may respond by simply reading aloud the names of all of the non-religious pro-life groups listed in Figure 20-1. The non-religious pro-life groups in this figure are marked with an asterisk (*).
