Irish bishop argues the case against legalizing abortion

Catholic World News – 10/31/17

A vote to amend Ireland’s constitution to allow abortion would serve no purpose other than denying a fundamental human right, Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan of Waterford and Lismore argued in an address on the “crisis of democracy.” The bishop explained that a fundamental right is not granted by the state, but recognized as prior to state authority. He denied that restrictions on abortion cause risks for mothers, noting that Ireland’s maternal-health rate compares favorably to that of countries like the US that allow abortion on demand. Registration may be required for access.
