Spanish bishop denounces new law on abortion as 'venom of immorality'

.- Bishop Jesus Sanz Montes of Huesca in Spain has called the new law on abortion being promoted by the Zapatero administration “chauvinist and unjust.” He added that calling abortion a “right” is “a venomous source of immorality and injustice that mars the entire law.”

In a pastoral letter, Bishop Sanz criticized the government for its demagoguery and half-truths, which are so laughable as to not merit a response “were it not for the fact that the human life of an innocent human being is in question.”

He also warned against the “economic agenda of abortion clinics and laboratories that are ‘marketing’ abortion pills” and against politicians who wink and nod at so-called progress in order to obtain political benefits and social status, while turning a blind eye to issues such as the economic crisis, corruption and loss of prestige at the international level.

“Abortion has a profound effect upon women, who would otherwise not be given the time of day by pro-abortion lawmakers who vote to provide funding for the nonsense that takes place in laboratories and clinics,” the bishop said.

“It is a suicidal killing in which the unborn baby dies and the mother begins her long and terrible agony,” he added.
