Some months ago, Archbishop Désiré Tsarahazana of Toamasina (Tamatave), told us:
in my own diocese! Without my knowledge,...they [CRS] were working on
an artificial contraception project here...And, then, the Catholic
people around here heard about it and said: "What's that all about?
That's supposed to be 'Catholic?'" So, there you have it: They [CRS]
were following the instructions of USAID."
We await clarification from CRS as to whether the problem was resolved when the offending program, Santenet2 program ended on July 24th, or whether CRS proactively ended its participation in this immoral program.
We would also like to thank Cardinal Dolan, who is president of the USCCB, which is ultimately responsible for the actions of CRS, for his helpful intervention in this matter of concern to all Catholics of good will.
