Bishops denounce conference on abortion training in Northern Ireland

Catholic World News - October 07, 2010

The Catholic bishops of Northern Ireland have issued a statement denouncing a conference on abortion practice, saying that the conference is “clearly designed to undermine the rights and welfare of children in the womb and the consistently pro-life position of the majority of people on this island.”

Noting that abortion is illegal under most circumstances , the bishops question whether civil officials should allow a conference that is intended to help train medical personnel to perform abortions. “A conference which promotes themes such as ‘manual vacuum aspiration’ and ‘issues in late abortion’ is an affront to the dignity of the human person,” the bishops say.
