Spain’s draft bill on abortion: a “positive advance” for the Church

Publié le : 31 January 2014

 This Thursday, Spanish Bishops welcomed the draft bill adopted in December by the Spanish Council of Ministers relating to abortion (Gènéthique press review December 23rd, 2013).     

In their press release, the Spanish Bishops declared: "The Bishops always welcome initiatives from any avenue in favour of human life.[…] Consequently, they recognise a positive advance in the bill presented by the government compared to current legislation, which has considered abortion to be a right". They nevertheless wish to state that "any law on abortion, however restrictive it may be, is still an unjust law".
