Bishop John Fleming of Killala has a good article in The Irish Times, it is well worth reading. In the piece the Bishop reminds us that abortion is never a humane solution to problems, it is in reality the killing of another, innocent human being.
Though it is a gentle defence of life, the Bishop also points out that for Catholics taking the life of an unborn child is never an option and the Church in Ireland will oppose any attempts to introduce abortion into our country.
I find it most ironic that after having a Constitutional referendum claiming to protect the rights of children shoved down our necks, now the same government may well be planning to deprive Irish children of the right to life. Where is the consistency?
Well done to the Bishop, and to the Bishops of Ireland. As I said before we need to pray for and support our Bishops in the forthcoming battle for life.
