Lima cardinal warns Peruvians not be deceived about morning-after pill

.- As the courts in Peru continue to debate about whether to legalize the morning-after pill, the Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, called the promoters of the morning-after pill “liars and killers.”

During a Mass celebrating the feast of Our Lord of the Miracles, the cardinal exhorted the faithful to pray “especially for those babies still in the wombs of their mothers.”

In referring to the morning-after pill and its potential abortifacient mechanism, the cardinal exclaimed, “Stop with the lies about that drug that claims to be science but only kills and the nonsense about the day before or the morning-after.  Liars! Killers!”

“They should not say that the religious culture of the Church should be a personal matter; that is not true.  Let us not be carried away by license or by those who say, I do what I want.  We must do good.  This is a civilization that is greatly attacking the family.  Let us pray for the family, because life is under attack,” he told the thousands of faithful gathered for the Mass.
