Reader of Catholic REgister accuses Procter & Gamble Firm denies charge it backs abortion CINCINNATI (AP)-- The Procter & Gamble Co., busy beating down rumors of Satanism, now is answering a charge in a letter to the National Catholic Register that the company promotes abortion. The accusation came last week in a letter to the editor of the Register, a weekly published in California. The writer, who identified himself as John Reisling of New York, accused the company of playing a "central role in the international abortion and birth-control movement." The letter accused the company of "continuing contributions" to Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Right Action League. P&G spokeswoman Linda Ilrey said the company never sad contributed to the league and had ended a string of contributions to Planned Parenthood when the organization took what she termed a "lead role" among advocates of free choice on the abortion issue. Ms. Ulrey said P&G contributed $70,000 to Planned Parenthood from 1972 to 1979 and restricted use of the contributions to a "health-education program." Ms. Ulrey said the abortion charges are not new and that the company has developed a "small file" over the years to answer the allegations. She said a letter from the company to one customer pointed out that sales volum of Pampers disposable diapers is No. 1 in P&Gs product line and that the Cincinnati-based company is not likely to promote anything that would reduce its parkets. BETRAYED YET AGAIN!! Proctor and Gamble, whose business is to sell soap to women, appears to have caved in to a very moderate amount of pressure from right-wing Catholics. It seems clear that Proctor and Gamble should hear from us as well as from those who would deny women the right to decision making in reproductive matters. I, for one, will not buy another Proctor and Gamble product until their decision about Planned Parenthood is reversed. (Proctor and Gamble, SE Cor 6th & Sycamore, Cincinnati OH 45202 is the adress.)
