Womb is most dangerous place for a child, warns Spanish bishop

.- Bishop Demetrio Fernandez of Cordoba in Spain said this week that with the increase in abortions, a mother's womb “has become the most danger place for survival.”

During a Mass celebrating Our Lady of Fuensanta, Bishop Fernandez expressed his concern for the ease with which women can obtain abortions, while “they are offered nothing to help them continue their pregnancy.” 

“Women have once again become victims of a selfish society,” he added, with “many feeling obliged to carry out this act which they will regret for the rest of their lives.”

Bishop Fernandez said women must look to Mary, whose womb “became a holy fountain of life that gave birth to Jesus, the savior Son.”  The prelate also referred to the constant attacks on religious traditions “in an age in which pluralism is being fostered.” 

“They cannot hurt us Christians,” he said.  “They may take our lives, but never our faith.”
