Bishop issues pastoral letter decrying new abortion clinic

Catholic World News - August 03, 2012

A New Zealand bishop has issued a pastoral letter decrying plans to establish an abortion clinic a hospital. The pastoral letter will be read at all Sunday Masses in the Diocese of Dunedin on August 5.

“As a family of faith we are opposed to all abortion, and we must do all we can to prevent this culture of death spreading in our country,” writes Bishop Colin Campbell. “As the ad goes, ‘think globally, act locally.’” Let us continue to pray and raise our voices in the private and public arena and in our wider community. Let our voices and pleas be heard by our politicians and Minister of Health. We pray that members of the Southern District Health Board and its management will hear our voice and reject this license for abortion at our Southland Hospital.”
