The Virgosign on abortion.
Let me make my position clear on this - I am not for killing unborn babies. Or living ones for that matter! But I also believe in Truth, Freedom of Expression, Free Will and Peace. And so, in spite of my anti-abortion stand, I will not impose it on anybody else. This is a messy controversial issue, highly personal and spiritually between the individual, her conscience and God.
Argentina has just rejected a bill to allow selected legalised abortions. Argentina is the homeland of Papa Francesco and media reports that the Church had a big say in the result. Of course, that’s a given. The Church needs to see to the overall good of mankind and irrespective if the whole world is for abortion, or the nauseating secular-state arguments, the Church (or anyone for that matter) cannot condone killing.
I mean, only last week the Church made a turnaround and abolished the death penalty for crying out loud.
