And we wonder why we are losing: USCCB official is campaign treasurer of pro-abortion senator who defeated a pro-life incumbent and filibustered against Texas pro-life legislation

Ralph McCloud, director of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, an arm of the U. S. Conference for Catholic Bishops, was the campaign treasurer for Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, who recently carried out an eleven-hour filibuster against a pro-life bill in the state legislature. McCloud served as Davis’ campaign treasurer in 2008 when she defeated a pro-life incumbent. 

McCloud has claimed that he was not aware of Davis’ position on abortion and that his role on the campaign was minimal. However, Davis’ stance on abortion was clear during the election. Her campaign was strongly backed by Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion PAC Annie’s List raised hundreds of thousands of dollars on her behalf while McCloud was her treasurer.
The Campaign for Human Development has been long criticized for funding many groups that advocate abortion, so-called same-sex marriage, and contraception.  A number of pro-life bloggers have been calling for McCloud’s ouster. We join them today.
