Cardinal Wuerl: abortion remains ‘the fundamental basic issue’

January 13, 2016

In an interview with Newsmax TV, Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington said that abortion “remains the fundamental basic issue” in an election year.

“One reason it strikes me, one reason why we are so casual in our country with violence, we see violence exercised with such ease, such disrespect for human life,” he said on January 11.

Younger Americans have been “taught since they were infants that it’s all right to kill,” he continued. “It’s all right to kill as long as the person is inconvenient to you and fits into a certain category. This category is nine months or less.”
