Financial motives influence decisions on abortion, euthanasia: Italian cardinal
January 03, 2013
The president of the Italian bishops’ conference has warned that financial motives are often a factor in the decision to obtain an abortion or to authorize euthanasia.
Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco of Genoa said that the dignity of human life is endangered when there is no voice to defend “the weakest, most fragile life that does not yet have so much as a face or voice to assert itself and its own rights; or the life that no longer has a voice because it is lost in a state of unconsciousness or mental illness.”
