“We need the children who are aborted,” Austrian bishop says in response to anti-life resolution

.- The head of the Committee on Marriage, the Family, Bioethics and the Defense of Life of the Austrian Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Klaus Kung, deplored a resolution that demands the members of the European Council legalize abortion and said, “We need those aborted children.”

Bishop Kung said abortion has left a profound wound in European society and that the killing of an unborn child should never be minimized.

“It’s time for parliamentarians to think about the measures they are going to take to make the acceptance of a child easier,” he said, voicing his support for doctors who speak out about the spiritual suffering of women who have undergone abortion.

The bishop also said counseling for pregnant women who are in difficult situations should be fostered and that measures should be taken to help provide them economic support as well.

Bishop Kung said, “It is time to give greater protection to the rights of parents with handicapped children, and to thus avoid and effectively combat this kind of discrimination.”
