The Dallas Cowboys and Planned Parenthood
By Matt C. Abbott

The NFL football season is coming to a close, and the playoffs will soon be upon us. Which makes this item newsworthy, I think.

The Dallas Cowboys Football Club is, sad to say, a supporter of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider and promoter of abortion. This according to Life Decisions International.

Now, I don't put the blame on the entire team for supporting Planned Parenthood, but I do blame Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who contributed several thousand dollars to the abortion giant in 1998.

Contrast Jones with Chicago Bears majority owner Virginia McCaskey, a devout Catholic known for her support of pro-life causes. (See also here.) God bless her!

Life Decisions International confirmed to me that "[t]he Dallas Cowboys Football Club is still a boycott target due to its support of Planned Parenthood. Sounds like a major fumble to us."

Indeed.

Pro-life social workers

Don Gatwood sent me the following (edited) e-mail:

"The following is a link to the newly formed Catholic Social Workers National Association. We are a Christian answer for social workers who are pro-life. We likewise hope to offer social workers and students of social work an alternative to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), which is one of the largest supporters, both philosophically and financially, of abortion in this country. Thanks in advance for your support."
