.- The Archbishop of Canterbury has called for a review of Britain’s abortion law, reported abc.net. In a commentary in the Sunday Times, Archbishop Rowan Williams said public opposition to the country’s current abortion legislation has increased.
A poll in the Sunday Express demonstrated this trend. It reported 59 per cent of a survey of 800 people believed the legal time limit for an abortion should be reduced to below the current 24 weeks.
Williams said the current law was against church teaching and that it was right for Christians to boldly debate the issue in the public forum.
Last week, the Catholic Church called for abortion to become an issue in the May elections.
