The new Spanish law which could make abortions a "right" for young girls was deemed senseless by the new head of the Pontifical Academy for Life. The man leading the government that passed the law, President Zapatero, is "incapable of understanding what a right is," he said.
In an interview with Il Consultente Re, an Italian Catholic monthly, the new Pontifical Academy for Life president Msgr. Ignacio Carrasco addressed the legislation recently passed in Spain under the administration of President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.
The law, allowing girls 16 years-old and above to abort their children up to the 14th week without obtaining parental permission, was passed by the Zapatero government on July 5 of this year.
Msgr. Carrasco called the law "senseless, absolutely senseless" and added that "it corresponds to Zapatero's mentality.
