Bishop Jose Gea Escolano of Mondoñedo-Ferrol, criticized this week a legislative package the Socialist government is seeking to implement in the new legislative session that would make it easier to obtain abortions and would speed up the divorce process in Spain.
Regarding the new laws that would make abortion legal for any reason during the first 12-14 weeks of pregnancy, Bishop Gea Escolano said the issue is about “the greatest crime ever committed in history.”
“We talk about killings, concentration camps, gulags, but really thousands and thousands of children are sacrificed in the wombs of their mothers. This is so absurd that it cannot be compared with any other genocide in history,” the bishop said.
Regarding the laws on divorce, the bishop said they were the equivalent of “firing a torpedo at the hull of the boat of marriage.” “Legislation of this type will have no positive impact for the good of the family nor for the stability of couples,” he concluded.
