Abortion policy destroying European societies, Spanish bishop warns

.- Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Cordoba in Spain said pro-abortion policies are leading to “the destruction of society,” to the degree that “prosperous European societies such as Germany, France or Holland, among others, are now dying.  He stressed that the same thing is currently taking place in Spain.

In an interview with Europa Press, Bishop Fernandez said the situation facing Europe is obvious. “If nothing more, if there are no children, there will not be a sufficient number of workers. But it doesn’t seem that anyone is concerned about this issue and only the Church is speaking up.”

For this reason, he continued, “the Church, which supports life,” will come to the aid of “mothers who are often forced (to abort), as they are left with no other option, because our public institutions provide every assistance possible for abortions but nothing for those who wish to carry their babies to term and give birth.”  It will be up to the Church to “make up” for this lack of institutional support for mothers in difficult circumstances, for those “who don’t even have the chance to give birth even though they wish they could,” because “everything pushes them towards abortion and nobody helps them to bring their pregnancies to a positive conclusion.”

Amidst these destructive anti-life policies, Bishop Fernandez said, the Church defends “the love and the appreciation of life and trusts that, despite everything, a sufficient number of Christians will transmit life abundantly so that the species continues and is not extinguished.”
