The Catholic University of Americas school of social work is reportedly cutting ties with a group due to its advocacy of abortion.
Will Rainford, who became Dean of the National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS) in June of this year, recently announced in an email to students that he was ending relations with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) because of its position that social workers should support access to abortions for clients, according to the Chronicle of Social Change.
The NASW states in its issues section that social workers should, assist clients in obtaining whatever help and information they need for effective family planning and for maintaining their reproductive health including securing funding for abortion services.
The organizations support of abortion rights doesnt end with its policy statement either. The NASW co-sponsored a march for reproductive freedom on the National Mall in Washington D.C.; it contested political nominations because of the nominees pro-life stance; and publicly supported legislation to legalize abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy, allow post-viability abortions to be performed on an out-patient basis in clinics, allow non-physicians to perform abortions, and possibly eliminate conscience protection of religious hospitals that refuse to perform abortions.
In the email, Rainford informed students, Such a concrete and public declaration by an institution is completely incongruent with Catholic Tradition and thus renders the organization out of bounds for the school as an institution.
The NCSSSs website states, Social workers attend to the ways human life is attacked, degraded, and discarded. In social work practice, every person is precious, requiring the professional social worker to strive towards enhancing the life and dignity of the human person.
A recent tweet from Rainford appears to affirm he takes this core principle of Catholicism to heart. He tweeted, I just don’t know how u can be Catholic and support abortion. People make up their own religion 2 justify self.
They’ve been cleaning house for a few years and really
Pope Benedict visited there and told them that they had a lot of nerve referring to themselves as catholic with their practices and endorsents.
The church at work
Next he needs to visit Georgetown.
A Christian of any stripe shouldn’t be pro-abort. That’s fighting against Christ.
Popes telling off some of the more egregious abusers.
No visit required...just burn the place down. I’m a CUA alumnus and am glad to see my alma mater clean house.
Yes, everyone has to take out the trash sooner or later.
Too bad Catholic University was too stupid or PC to do it sooner.
Good, more should do just this.
h/t to Gonzell for the ping!
