Cardinal Rouco defends right to life of unborn

.- Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela of Madrid presided at a solemn Mass last week honoring the city’s patron, St. Isidore, during which he defended the right to life of the unborn.

Recalling the saint’s love for the poor exemplified by his leaving a place at the table every night for those in need, Cardinal Rouco Varela said that if children are not allowed to be born, “the common table of the human family will be left without children and end up empty.”  For this reason, “No unborn child should be denied the right to be born,” he said, adding that “allowing children to be born is the first and fundamental duty of the love of neighbor and of the love of those in need.”

“If the right to life of every human being is not scrupulously respected, from conception to natural death, we will be left without the fundamental essential ethic for building a social and legal order that is worthy be coming called humane, just and based on solidarity,” he said.
