Cardinal warns Dominicans are keeping an eye on Congress regarding abortion

.- The Archbishop of Santo Domingo, Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez, said last week that the country is “zealously watching” what Congress does with regard to “the right to life and the condemnation of abortion.”

The cardinal’s comments came during Corpus Christi Mass at the Quisqueya Stadium. “Dominicans will not allow international organizations to impose customs on them, such as abortion, which are not part of their culture,” he said. “If other nations, including those that are supposedly civilized, are willing to accept that things be imposed on them that are not part of the soul of their cultures, we as the Dominican people will not accept that,” the cardinal stated.

He also warned against some in the media who speak incoherently about the “permissibility of abortion” and who are ignored by the majority of Dominicans.

“Many recent polls have shown that the Dominican people love human life and want respect for human life to be enshrined in the constitutional reform,” he said.
