NEWS RELEASE

MEDIA STATEMENT REGARDING YOUNG “CATHOLICS” FOR CHOICE
It has come to my attention that an organization calling itself “Young Catholics for Choice” has recently entered into collaboration with Family Planning Health Services of Wausau. Through media advertising, “Young Catholics for Choice” is attempting to convey the message that Catholics can disregard Church teaching regarding contraception, abortion and human sexuality in general and remain Catholics in good standing. Nothing could be further from the truth. While people can call themselves whatever they want, it is my duty as a bishop to state clearly and unequivocally that by professing and disseminating views in grave contradiction to Catholic teaching, members of organizations like “Young Catholics for Choice” in fact disown their Catholic heritage, tragically distancing themselves from that communion with the Church to which they are called. We pray that they may reconcile their position which is contrary to the Catholic Faith they claim to profess. + Most Rev. Jerome E. Listecki Archbishop-Designate of Milwaukee
