EWTN.com - Catholic Charities: "Catholic Charities
Is it all right to contribute to Catholic Charites? I read that at one time they were giving out condoms in the third world countries & were in involved in the abortion of a teenage girl on the east coast.

Let me set the record straight for you.
CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES is promoting 'complete information' on condoms for those who have AIDS or could be susceptible to acquiring the HIV virus. The facts on this are at http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/library/view.cfm?id=8093&CFID=84922716&CFTOKEN=65094630
Catholic Charities in the Richmond, Virginia diocese facilitated getting an abortion for an immigrant, and the staff involved in that were allegedly fired. But a cloud remains over this entire matter in my opinion. You can read about it at http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/jun/08061906.html
In general Catholic Charities does not fit into a totally 'good' or all 'bad' category; it depends on where you live and what the agency is involved with where you live.
