Catholic Relief Services has made many claims in the past few weeks. They have not, however, been able to explain their involvement in the Santénet2 program, which the on-the-ground investigator for Population Research Institute heard about again and again.
The images below require more than blanket denials—they require a full explanation. Part of the explanation may include a discussion of their relationship with their largest donor; the United States government which gives Catholic Relief Services 70% of their annual revenue. That is, most of CRS’ money comes from USAID, the world’s largest promoter of contraception, sterilization, and abortion.
Look at the images below and decide for yourself. Has CRS answered all of your questions?
