Planned Parenthood, Hitler
should not be compared

To the editor:

While I can see Fr. Tad Pacholczyk's point about not turning a blind eye to evil around us, I would like to take exception to his comparison of the Planned Parenthood organization with Hitler and the Nazis. The objectives of Planned Parenthood are hardly evil - ultimately the aim is to alleviate neglect and abuse of unwanted children, however misguided may be the methods used to achieve that goal.

Hitler had no such worthy goal. His actions were based on hate. And the Catholic Church set a less than stellar example at the time with respect to condemning Hitler.

I agree it is wrong to turn a blind eye to evil. Hopefully the Catholic Herald will as heartily condemn the dishonesty, greed, and cruelty of this country's current administration, with resultant loss of innocent lives and livelihoods and the shameful use of barbaric torture.

Maggie Carrao, Madison
