Argentine bishops speak out against abortion
August 29, 2011
One year after Argentina legalized same-sex marriage, the nation’s legislature is discussing the legalization of abortion.
“When a woman is pregnant, it is not one life we are talking about , but two,” the standing committee of the nation’s episcopal conference said in a statement. “Both must be preserved and respected.”
“Biology shows in a striking way through the DNA and the sequencing of the human genome that from the moment of conception there is a new human life that must be protected by law,” the bishops added. “The right to life is the fundamental human right … Abortion is never a solution.”
