Abortion supporters defame Church in Dominican Republic

.- An editorial in the Catholic weekly “Camino” has slammed abortion  supporters in the Dominican Republic for using disrespectful language to refer to the Church.

“There are those who speak of the Church with a language that borders on disrespect for the social norms of civilized peaceful coexistence, and we also have lawmakers who voted against article 30 and now do not want the community to know their names,” the editorial stated.

It went on to question the posture of those lawmakers who after having voted in support of life, are now trying to remain anonymous in order to gain favor with everyone.

Most Dominicans are against abortion and thus lawmakers would “commit betrayal if they were to vote for a measure rejected by their constituents, since their power comes not from themselves but from the people,” the editorial explained.

Lawmakers who oppose article 30 of the Constitution “should understand clearly that the Church is not pressuring anyone, but rather is guiding the faithful about the actions taken by their representatives.”

“This shouldn’t be any cause of fear,” the paper stated. “Each person should respond to the dictates of their own principles and conscience, but we cannot have ambivalent positions, because we cannot play around with life.”
