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.
RIGHT NOW… they have a “matching grant” going on. Every donation to the clinic from now to the end of the year will be matched, so your donation does double duty.
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?
They have a DONATION page.
Tell them Fr. Z sent you.

I was recently in the clinic a couple times for … something. It was like a meeting of the United Nations in there! They said that whenever I mention them on the blog, they get donations from all over.
Therefore, they will not refer for abortion, prescribe contraception, refer for sterilization, refer for in vitro fertilization, etc.
“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.
