United States might affect consumers of imported food product, according to Father John Bocglin. That is only one of his concerns about the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Laborers, farmers and busi- ness persons ought to be con- cerned about the agreement, according to Father Boeglin. He believes the agreement will affect every community no matter how small or large it may be. Father Boeglin is the direc- tor of the Catholic Rural Life in the Diocese of Evansville, an advisor for the Indiana Catholic Conference, and pas- tor of St Celestine Church, Celestine. Catholic Rural, Life Directors recently met in Donaldson, Ind., to study the impact of the agreement. NAFTA is the U.S. trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.

Father Boeglin Said there is h',gislation could require the Unite(l States to accept food containing residues of pesti- cides banned or severely lim- ited in the United Siates, such as DDT, heptachlor and endrin.

On Aug. 6, 1992, congress passed NAFTA with the stip- ulation to protect American labor, as well as consumer and environmental standards, but Father Boeglin ques- tioned whether that will re- ally happen. "There is a definite moral concern about this part of the agreement," he said. "Are there grave flaws in NAFTA which will severely impact U.S. citizens?
