Planned Parenthood Executives to Speak at Los Angeles Archdiocese’s Convention Center

UPDATE: We have been informed by Church Militant that the Archdiocese has decided to cancel the conference as of June 20th.

(LOS ANGELES, California) – On Friday, June 23rd, the Center at Cathedral Plaza in Los Angeles will be hosting a conference at which two representatives of Planned Parenthood will speak. Entitled “Uncertain Times: Charting the Path Forward for Women’s Health”, the conference is hosting “two of California’s leading women’s health advocates,” Kathy Kneer and Sue Dunlap.

The provided biographies of the two women leave no doubt that by “women’s health” they mean “abortion.” Kathy Kneer has been President and CEO of the California Planned Parenthood network’s public policy office for more than twenty years. According to her bio, she has been responsible for legislation expanding contraceptive access, developing school sex education, and defeating parental notification proposals three separate times. Sue Dunlap, also employed by Planned Parenthood for two decades, is the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, “one of the largest … in the country.”

The center where the conference is to be held is part of the complex of Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral in Los Angeles, seat of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, overseen by Archbishop Gomez. Booking and events at the conference center are managed by a third-party company, Levy Restaurants. However, the center is part of Cathedral property and those who buy tickets to this event will be parking their cars inside Cathedral grounds. The Archdiocese should not be, even indirectly, supporting an event which could potentially be described as a council of war of the Church’s enemies. If you would like to contact the Archdiocese to raise this issue to their awareness, please contact them by any of the following methods:


Archdiocese of Los Angeles
