Catholic Relief Services Employees Stand With Planned Parenthood?

by Michael Hichborn
Lepanto Institute

Following on the heels of the Lepanto Institute’s latest analysis of employees at Catholic Relief Services comes the discovery that at least four of CRS’s employees “stand” with Planned Parenthood.


Jessica Garrels has been a Program Quality & Business Development coordinator for Catholic Relief Services, stationed in Mali, since 2012. Prior to that, she spent 10 months working as a fellow for CRS in Niger.

On November 28, 2015,Garrels posted a “#StandwithPP” overlay over one of her pictures, indicating that she supports Planned Parenthood and endorses continued government funding of the big-box retail chain of abortion stores. As is indicated in the image below, there are 26 “likes” of this post by Garrels … three of which came from other CRS employees.


The Chairman of the board of Catholic Relief Services is Archbishop Paul Coakley. Please contact Archbishop Coakley and respectfully ask him to clean house at CRS, starting with the removal of employees who act against the Church. As long as CRS employs individuals whose philosophies are completely against Catholic teaching, this problem will only get worse.  Contact him by e-mail at rlewis@archokc.org or by phone at 405-721-5651 Ext. 157.

The Lepanto Institute for the Restoration of All Things in Christ is a research and education organization dedicated to the defense of the Catholic Church against assaults from without as well as from within. Whether in the form of armies, heretics, or traitors, the Church has always faced enemies seeking Her destruction. Today, the Church faces all three.  For more information, please use this link.
