Irish cardinal urges Catholics to speak out on behalf of right to life
CWN - December 26, 2012
Days after the Irish government announced it would draft legislation allowing some abortions, Cardinal Seán Brady said in his Christmas message that “there is no more important value than upholding the right to life in all circumstances.”
“Public representatives will be asked to decide whether a caring and compassionate society is defined by providing the best possible care and protection to a woman struggling to cope with an unwanted pregnancy or by the deliberate destruction of another human life," said the Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. “I hope that everyone who believes that the right to life is fundamental will make their voice heard in a reasonable, but forthright, way to their representatives, reminding them that the right to life is conferred on human beings not by the powerful ones of this world but by the Creator.”
“No government has the right to remove that right from an innocent person,” he added.
