Catholic hospital cannot comply with new Irish abortion law, says priest on governing board
Catholic World News - August 07, 2013
A priest who sits on the board of a Catholic hospital in Dublin has said that the institution cannot comply with Ireland’s new law allowing for legal abortion in some cases.
Father Kevin Doran told the Irish Times that the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital “can’t carry out abortions because it goes against its ethos.”
The hospital has not announced an official position on the issue. The board of governors, of which Father Doran is a member, will discuss the matter soon.
