No one is obliged to cooperate with Northern Ireland’s new abortion legislation, according to the Catholic bishops of the province.
Ireland’s Catholic bishops have criticized the use of intolerant language when it comes to discussions around migration and refugees.
Northern Ireland’s Catholic bishops said the introduction of abortion into the province was a “a tragic day for the unborn children who will now never bless our world with their unique and precious lives,” and called on people to hold their elected representatives “accountable” for the development.
Ireland’s bishops are calling on the island’s parishes, schools and Catholic communities to help those suffering from domestic abuse.
Northern Ireland politicians should “do all in their power” to prevent the Oct. 21 imposition of legal abortion in the province by the UK Parliament, according to the bishops of Ireland.
A woman healed at the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock in Ireland 30 years ago has been formally acknowledged by the Church as having no “medical explanation.”
