31 / 08 / 2010 - Abortion is murder, not `termination of pregnancy,` maintains Argentinan archbishop
In a recent message, Bishop Jorge Luis Lona from San Luis in Argentina criticized the country's officials for promoting abortion by describing the procedure as a “termination of pregnancy.”
The prelate lamented that Argentina is becoming a culture of “promoting abortion.” “The shocking word ‘murder’ will not be used. It will be said that it is only a ‘pregnancy termination,’ but lives will be definitively interrupted,” the bishop explained.
“Another ploy is to present the issue not as one of life or death, … but rather as a mere bureaucratic procedure” that would allow for the most liberal access to abortion, he added.
The bishop also denounced the discrimination against children who are denied the right to a father and a mother. “Today, the activists who promote the culture of abortion in Argentina are the same ones ... who promote homosexual marriage and aim to extend its effects to all of society at the educational and cultural level,” Bishop Lona warned.
“This is a global effort whose central nucleus is undoubtedly bound to some sectors of the United Nations. In the name of the struggle against discrimination, they unleash the most active and unjust discrimination against those who believe that God is ‘the source of all reason and justice,’ and who live sustained by that faith,” the bishop said.
