THE VATICAN has described the proposed abortion legislation published by the Irish Government this week to be “morally unacceptable, unless its covered up properly”.
In a statement issued today, the head-quarters of the Catholic church said the killing of an unborn child was an ‘unlawful act’ and should be kept a close secret if the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill 2013, is to go through.
“Whether you’re killing a child or abusing it; it needs to be hidden from the mainstream media.” the statement said. “From our experience, publicly glorifying such a thing leads to complications.”
The Catholic bishops had earlier branded the proposed changes to Ireland’s strict abortion regime as amateurish and urged the Irish Government to take a leaf out of their book.
The church hierarchy said the deliberate decision to deprive a human being of life is always morally wrong, if not kept a closely guarded secret.
Irish Cardinal Sean Brady said the bishops have not discussed whether people who advocate support for the legislation should be tarred and feathered upon entering church grounds, and proposed giving unwanted children to the church to mind.
“If a mother doesn’t want her child, then give it to their local Catholic priest to mind” he told WWN earlier. “We’ll take good care of any child that comes to the house of God and take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
“Amen.” he added.
