Archbishop Amato’s comments came during a conference organized by the Pontifical Council for Migrants. The theme of the conference was the role of airport chaplains in the struggle against terrorism. During his remarks he referred to abortion, RU 486, genetic manipulation and the passage of laws against the human person as expressions of “evil” in modern-day society.
The ANSA news agency reported that Archbishop Amato denounced the “almost invisible” evil that comes from “the most unthinkable places y that, paradoxically, is presented as good” and as an expression of “the progress of humanity.”
Archbishop Amato called abortion clinics, abortion drug laboratories, and houses of parliament where abortion is passed “true slaughterhouses of budding human beings.”
.- The Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Angelo Amato, said abortion and euthanasia represent “terrorism with a human face” which affect society day every day.
