Spain: Bishops denounce new abortion law

Catholic World News - July 06, 2010

A new Spanish law that declares abortion a woman’s right and permits abortion on demand during the first 14 weeks of pregnancy went into effect on July 5. Spain’s bishops denounced the law “because it considers the elimination of life of those who are going to be born as a right of the expectant mother during the first 14 weeks of the pregnancy, leaving practically without any protection whatsoever these human lives, precisely at the stage when the great majority of abortions are carried out.”

The bishops also noted that the law “establishes such an ambiguous concept of health that is equivalent to the introduction of the so-called social and eugenic indications as the legal justification of abortion” and “imposes on the compulsory educational system the ideology of abortion and ‘gender.’”
