<span class="entry-content">After we reported last week that the [[:Category:National Council of Churches|National Council of Churches]] had filed an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court supporting the Church of Scientology's petition in the forced-abortion lawsuit of [[:Category:Laura DeCrescenzo|Laura DeCrescenzo]], at least one member of the NCC has expressed its disapproval.
Readers of the [[:Category:Underground Bunker|Underground Bunker]] reached out to members of the NCC, and one of those members - the Episcopal Church - reacted by saying it was never informed by the NCC that it was filing the brief, and informed the NCC that it objected to being included.
From the details of the amicus brief, it was hard not to conclude that the NCC was unaware that the lawsuit brought by DeCrescenzo is about a 17-year-old girl forced to have an abortion so she could continue to work 100-hour work weeks for pennies an hour in church employment.</span>
