Scottish Catholic Cardinal speaks out - about time some Christian leader did!

"I urge politicians to have no truck with the evil trade of abortion," the cardinal Keith O'Brien said. Catholic lawmakers, he said, are morally obligated to find "means of overthrowing the legislation which makes the killing possible." The cardinal also said that doctors should refuse to cooperate with abortion, and medical schools should "teach that all human life deserves protection." And that the increasing abortion rate in Scotland was equivalent to two Dunblane massacres a day.

Abortions should not at all be encouraged. But sadly in many countries abortions are legalised. In India though against the law people go for gender desiding scan and aborts the fetus if it is a female. These things should be controlled.

Wow! Why would they abort the fetus if it's a female..how do you think you would continue your race if you kill off all the females:( I haven't heard any medical breakthroughs that have enabled men to conceive or carry a baby!

Your doubts are quite genuine and reasonable. But unfortunately this happens here in India. Here is a custom of paying dowry to the groom on the ocassion of the marriage of a daughter. Parents prefer male children mainly because of this practice. in spite of this millions of girl children are born and bought up here. I was just pointing out how some people are mis-utilising the modern techniques to achieve their evil goals.

Thank you for sharing that. In the US Catholics are always speaking out against abortion, as are other Christian groups.

I think we need a few strong scottishs cardinals to come on over here to talk to our cardinals who seem to hesitate to tell politicians that are Catholic to stand their ground and promote what's right.
