In a letter to directors of education, Bishop Ronald Fabbro of the London Diocese said while Catholics can continue to support the Canadian Cancer Society because “they do all sorts of good works.”

But Catholics must ensure the money being donated is not used for controversial research that causes embryos to die, the bishop said, according to a National Post report today.
