Abortions reportedly done at Spanish Catholic hospitals
March 13, 2012
Citing the testimony of Spanish doctors and pro-life activists, the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reports that abortions and sterilizations are apparently taking place at Catholic hospitals in Spain.
Last November Cardinal Lluis Martinez Sistach of Barcelona assured CNA that reports of abortions in Catholic hospitals there were wrong. But pro-life activists insist that the cardinal’s information is inaccurate.
Also last November, a Spanish newspaper reporter found three Catholic hospitals on a government list of abortion providers. Women who have been treated at the hospitals confirm that they have been told that abortions were available. The head of the gynecology department at one of those hospitals, Dr. Joaquim Calaf Alsina, is a public advocate of legal abortion.
