Hillary campaign uses image of Blessed Mother Teresa
Washington DC, May 16, 2007 / 10:55 am (CNA).- The national Catholic-based advocacy group Fidelis, is calling for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to remove an image of Blessed Mother Teresa from their campaign video.
The video, which was released Monday, is narrated by her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“It is wholly inappropriate, disrespectful and disturbing that Hillary Clinton is using an image of Blessed Mother Teresa as a political tool, especially given their radically different views on abortion,” said Fidelis president Joseph Cella.
“Mother Teresa tirelessly fought to protect unborn children, while Hillary Clinton staunchly supports abortion on demand in all nine months of pregnancy, including partial birth abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion,” he said.
The video, which can be viewed on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com), contains an image of Hillary and Blessed Teresa at approximately 2:26 into the video. When the picture appears, the former president can be heard saying: “Hillary, in effect, was the face of America;in India”.
The video then goes to a clip of the former First Lady’s address at the 1995 Beijing Conference, where a push was made to declare abortion a fundamental “human right.”
Cella said he faxed a letter to Sister Nirmala, the Superior General of the Missionaries of Charity, and suggested that she look into this matter.
