Catholic World News - June 04, 2009
The Brazilian archbishop who was caught up in controversy when a 9-year-old girl obtained an abortion is complaining that the Vatican newspaper will not publish his side of the story. Archbishop José Cardoso Sobrinho of Recife notes that L'Osservatore Romano published criticism of his public statements by Archbishop Salvatore Fisichella, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life; he says that Archbishop Fisichella's article contained factual errors, and the Vatican paper should allow him to correct the record as well as to explain his own position accurately.
