Cardinal Canizares laments 40 million babies aborted in Spain

.- The new prefect for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Cardinal Antonio Canizares, expressed his concern this week over the eventual liberalization of the country’s abortion laws and recalled that 40 million babies in Spain have been killed by abortion.
 
Speaking on the Spanish television network TV3, Cardinal Canizares said he is concerned that “an innocent, weak and defenseless human being is violently eliminated, because that is always a very grave evil for humanity.”
 
“More than 40 million human beings have been legally destroyed when the law should be supporting rights and justice.  More than 40 million lives have been destroyed through medicine, when medicine is supposed to heal,” the cardinal said. 

Likewise, he warned against the Socialist government's plans to allow abortions for any reason up until the 14th week of pregnancy.  In cases of fetal deformation, it would be allowed until the 22nd week.

 This proposal, Cardinal Canizares said, “is seeking to bring about very significant social and cultural change, to make a totally new society and culture,” and “they are seeking to foster abortion as a point of reference [for the new society] because there is ignorance about the truth of man, ignorance about the dignity of the person and ignorance of human rights, the cardinal said.
 
“All of these principles are what Christian-Roman society is based upon. We can forsake these principles, but then we will cease to be who we are,” he added.
