Vienna's Cardinal Schönborn discourages attendance at pro-life rally
September 18, 2009
Vienna's Cardinal Christoph Schönborn sharply protested a decision by the city's Mayro Michael Häupl to host a celebration marking the 30th anniversary of a busy abortion clinic. But the cardinal discouraged pro-life activists from staging a counter-demonstration at city hall to protest that event, according the Gloria TV. Bishop Andreas Laun, an auxiliary of the Salzburg diocese, revealed that he stayed away from the protest at the cardinal's specific request.
