The Catholic Campaign for Human Development has been a source of controversy and has a history of funding organizations that promote abortion, homosexuality, contraception, and Marxism and some have even given funds to Planned Parenthood or distributed condoms. To view our report on the Marxist Core of the CCHD, click here. The CCHD continues to deny any wrongdoing, despite the mountain of evidence against it.
What follows is the latest information on the CCHD and its grantees. Just follow the links below:
Ralph McCloud assumed the duties of Director of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development in November of 2007. Prior to this position, he served as Mayor pro tem in Fort Worth, TX. While in Texas politics, McCloud gave a ringing endorsement to pro-abortion politician Wendy Davis, even serving as Treasurer on her campaign. McCloud has many other disturbing connections and has overseen millions of Catholic dollars going to organizations promoting abortion, contraception, homosexuality and Marxism.
