Catholics should engage in civil disobedience against anti-life legislation

.- The President of the Committee on Missions of the Bishops’ Conference of Mexico, Bishop Florencio Olvera Ochoa of Cuernavaca, said this week the new Compendium of the Catholic Church calls on the faithful to exercise civil disobedience against anti-life laws, noting that the human person “cannot go against nature.” “Laws that approve euthanasia, cloning or homosexual marriage trample upon human dignity, and we cannot allow this,” the bishop explained.  He said the call to civil disobedience should be heeded “in Mexico and throughout the world.”

Likewise, Bishop Olvera noted that the Compendium reaffirms that the human embryo must be protected and that in vitro fertilization and same-sex unions are immoral acts. 

In Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera warned as well that those who change the law to promote homosexual unions “will be responsible for the effects brought on by this unnatural situation.”
