Primate of Spain rebukes government claim that abortion is a right

.- In an interview on Tuesday about the Socialist government’s plan to revamp the country’s abortion law, Archbishop Braulio Rodríguez Plaza of Toledo and Primate of Spain said, “Abortion is not a right.”
 
Speaking on the COPE Radio Network, the archbishop explained that while the Spanish government portrays abortion as a right, many in the country, including the Catholic Church, “do not see it as a question of rights.”
 
He also said that the proposed law views abortion as a contraceptive such that “if the condom fails, if the morning after pill fails, abortion is still an option.  This is the logic” behind the law, he said.
 
After pointing out that the controversial course Education for the Citizenry only seeks to impose an ideology on children and young people in Spain, the archbishop praised the new encyclical by Pope Benedict XVI.

The Pontiff, he said, has laid out a series of general principles to “overcome a crisis that is much more than economic.”
