ANTI-CATHOLIC GROUP AND THE “SEA CHANGE” OFFSHORE ABORTION CAMPAIGN
WASHINGTON, May 24 (LSN.ca) – Catholics for a Free Choice, the pro-abortion, anti-Catholic group funded by the Playboy Foundation and Planned Parenthood, among others, has endorsed a new project attacking life. The group, whose “See Change” campaign aimed to oust the Vatican from its position as a permanent observer at the United Nations, is supporting a project which involves a ship called the “Sea Change” picking up women in countries where abortion is illegal and then aborting their babies on board the ship, 12 miles off shore. The 12-mile limit puts the ship in international waters, officially outside the given country’s jurisdiction.
While endorsed by CFFC, the campaign is headed up by The Women on Waves Foundation (WWF). WWF was founded in 1999 by Dutch abortionist Rebecca Gomperts and is based in the Netherlands.
Scandalously, although the Dutch parliament has been made aware of this proposal they have continued to allow WWF to maintain its charitable status.
