Spain becoming a eugenic society, warns Archbishop of Valladolid

.- Archbishop Braulio Rodriguez of Valladolid has denounced the progressive scorn for human life in the West, the existence of a “eugenic society” and movements that push for legal reform in order to legalize abortion. 

In his latest weekly pastoral letter, the archbishop said “We have grown accustomed to abortion.  It no longer seems strange and no longer scandalizes many people.”

Calling it a problem that “not only affects Catholics,” he criticized the “truly hypocritical face” of a society with high numbers of abortion while “thousands of couples have to go through long and arduous adoption processes.”

The archbishop warned that a society that scorns “the human dignity of the weakest” ends up becoming a “eugenic society in which, for example, children with Down’s syndrome are not permitted” and in which large families are considered “obsolete, outdated and subject to a religious imposition that cannot be tolerated.”
