The following letter was written by Catholic Media Coalition Head, Mary Ann Kreitzer. She reveals the truth about Teresa M. Kettelkamp. Kettelkamp was recently hired by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) as Director of the Bishop's Office of Child & Youth Protection.
Dear Soldiers of Christ,
Yesterday I sent out a letter from Teresa Kettelkamp, Director of the Office of Child Protection for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to all the bishops in the country regarding safe environment programs. Now that everyone is getting on board with criminal background checks and mandatory fingerprinting, the Office is moving on to the next order of business -- making classroom touching programs mandatory. No diocese may permit parents to teach their own children because they can't be trusted to do the job the professional experts want, including teaching 18 month olds to say "penis, vagina, scrotum, etc."
Of course, you can trust Ms. Kettelkamp to care about children. Or can you? Not unborn children - that's for sure!
Kettelkamp is a Board Member of the National Center for Women and Policing, a project of the Feminist Majority (FM) headed by Eleanor Smeal, a long-time abortion activist. The Feminist Majority is all about ABORTION. You can visit their website to see the other projects they support. http://www.feminist.org/welcome/indexcampaigns.asp
You will note when you visit the website that the Feminist Majority is an ABORTION ACTIVIST organization. Note the hotlink "Start a Pro-Choice Campus Group." This organization is all about teaching young people to accept abortion. How can Kettelkamp claim to be Catholic and serve on the Board of one of their horrible projects, and at the same, time say she wants to protect children? The National Center for Women and Policing is all about killing children!
Here are some of their projects:
Campaign for Mifepristone and Contraceptive Research
The FMF has waged a ten-year nationwide public education campaign to help make mifepristone available to American women as a method of early abortion and to expand clinic trials on other important indications of mifepristone such as breast cancer, endometriosis, meningioma (brain tumors) and fibroid tumors.
Emergency Contraception Over the Counter (ECOTC) Campaign
FMF's Campus Program has launched a major campaign to petition the FDA to make emergency contraception available over-the-counter. Join the campaign today by educating your campus about EC and organizing a petition drive to the FDA. Learn about EC, download petitions and our fact sheet, and get involved!
Rock for Choice
Since 1991 Rock for Choice has organized concerts in dozens of cities across the United States and Canada. Each concert registers concert goers to vote while encouraging them to speak out, get involved and learn how to protect their reproductive rights.
National Clinic Access Project
The oldest and largest clinic defense project [This is code language for preventing pro-life sidewalk counselors from offering assistance to mothers in crisis outside abortion mills.] in the nation, the National Clinic Access Project provides emergency clinic security, assistance, and community organizing support, researches and monitors anti-abortion extremists, and works with law enforcement to improve responsiveness to clinic violence.
Please call and talk to Ms. Kettelkamp about her connections to this abortion activist organization. Ask if she is pro-abortion.If she says "No," ask if she would belong to the KKK if they had a similar project on policing? There is NO WAY ON EARTH THIS CAN BE JUSTIFIED! It is another example of the irresponsibility of the USCCB.
