Cardinal urges Spanish: resist abortion law

Catholic World News - August 06, 2010

Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, has denounced a “dictatorship of relativism” in his native Spain, and warned that public acceptance of abortion “leads society to disaster.”

Speaking at a conference in Madrid, the former Archbishop of Toledo said that a law allowing the destruction on innocent unborn children is unjust and “ceases to be a true morally binding civil law.” He challenged the faithful to resist acceptance of that law.

Cardinal Cañizares said: "Let us refuse to support any initiative that goes against life, not give our support to individuals, institutions, works or measures to be or intended to go against life, we can not associate ourselves with those who deny something so fundamental."
