Dear Editor:

     A premise of the Oneonta "Daily Star's" Aug. 21 editorial 
regarding recent protests by Catholics at Planned Parenthood 
clinics in Sidney and Oneonta seems to be that protesters are 
only opposed to abortion.  PP makes most of its money by selling 
contraceptives  which is another reason why the Catholic Church 
has historically opposed the PP agenda. 

     Pope John Paul II, in his encyclical, "The Gospel of Life," 
summed it up best in the following excerpt from section 13. 

     "The close connection which exists, in mentality, between 
the practice of contraception and that of abortion is becoming 
increasingly obvious.  It is being demonstrated in an alarming 
way by the development of chemical products, intrauterine 
devices and vaccines which, distributed with the same ease as 
contraceptives, really act as abortifacients in the very early 
stages of the development of the life of the new human being." 

Yours truly,

Casimir & Isabelle Rogacki
