ACTION ITEM! Support Our Lady of Hope Clinic!

I have an ACTION ITEM for you good readers. You have been generous to causes I have mentioned in the past.  Sometimes people have a hard time finding causes to support.  This is one of them that I admire.

I have written about Our Lady of Hope Clinic before.  This is one of the worthiest causes I have seen for a while and it could use your help, wherever you are.

This could be a new model for health care in a rapidly changing – disintegrating – time.  The “Affordable” Care Act really isn’t.  It is going to be harder in the future for people to get health care, not easier.  And for those without much bucks?

Here is the pitch.

If you are near Madison, go to a benefit dinner.  If you are not near Madison, send them money anyway.  They have a DONATION page.

If you are anywhere withing striking range of Madison, WI, there will be a benefit dinner to support the clinic on Saturday, 10 May.  All the details are HERE  The dinner also will benefit the Women’s Care Center, which helps young women who are pregnant choose life.  Contact Julie Jensen, Director of Development, at Julie   -AT- ourladyofhopeclinic -DOT- org, or by calling (608) 957-1137.

In the clinic you see a sign on the wall explaining that

“Our Lady of Hope Clinic practices medicine consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church”

Therefore, they will not refer for abortion, prescribe contraception, refer for sterilization, refer for in vitro fertilization, etc.

And…

“We will practice in complete accord with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.”

This is a worthy cause.

I suggest that it is a model that may be duplicated in other places, especially as the chaos really starts to begin in healthcare in these USA.
