Point and Counterpoint: Abortion and Alternatives - Article 36, for Sunday, July 13, 2008

CATHOLICS, CHURCH AND COMMUNICATION
“WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE”

The undersigned have been attempting, since March 2006, to engage in a dialogue with the Laity and the Clergy by means of our articles entitled Point and Counterpoint, of which we have published thirty-five before this one.  All of these are available on the following website: www.asthma-drsprecace.com.  The most recent of these articles concerns “Plan B”, the abortifacient “birth control” agent.  This followed a period of eight months during which time we tried to stimulate reconsideration of an unfortunate action taken in September 2007 by the Catholic Bishops of Connecticut regarding the use of “Plan B” pills in the four Catholic hospitals of Connecticut.  In the last four months, our multiple efforts at communication have gone unanswered, both by the Diocese of Norwich and by the Archdiocese of Hartford.  We have thus communicated our concerns to the Papal Nuncio in Washington, D.C. which letter has been acknowledged.  Perhaps this situation should not seem unusual considering some contemporary history to wit:

Above all we seek honest and engaged dialogue with our Clergy…and with our fellow Catholics.  “Let us reason together, in faith”.  We do not accept the alternative of being ignored…or walking away like so many thousands of our disillusioned brethren.  And our commentaries will continue.
