.- Bishop Jesus Sanz Montes of Huesca in Spain has called the new law on abortion being promoted by the Zapatero administration âchauvinist and unjust.â He added that calling abortion a ârightâ is âa venomous source of immorality and injustice that mars the entire law.â
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 âwere it not for the fact that the human life of an innocent human being is in question.â
He also warned against the âeconomic agenda of abortion clinics and laboratories that are âmarketingâ abortion pillsâ 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.
âAbortion 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,â the bishop said.
âIt is a suicidal killing in which the unborn baby dies and the mother begins her long and terrible agony,â he added.
