Polish bishops seek complete abortion ban

March 31, 2016

The Catholic bishops of Poland have issued a call for a full ban on abortions.

Existing law in Poland makes abortion illegal except in cases of rape, incest, severe fetal deformation, or threat to the health of the mother. The bishops argue that these exceptions undermine the logic of the ban. "When it comes to the life of the unborn, we can't remain at the current compromise set out in the law," they argue. The bishops' statement will be read at all the churches of Poland on Sunday.

    We should pray that they are more successful at rallying the troops than our bishops are.
