Cardinal Nichols: 'Our commitment to unborn children remains unchanged'

by Eno Adeogun

Cardinal Nichols released a statement supporting the Archbishops of Armagh and Dublin, and their statements regarding changes to the Republic of Ireland's constitution as a result of the public vote.

The president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales said: "Our commitment to mothers and their unborn children remains unchanged. We must do all we can to ensure that the deliberate taking of an unborn human life is not an option that anyone would choose.

 

"The denial of life to another human being, a brother or sister, is an wrong that harms our fragile humanity. We work and pray for the day when this truth is widely accepted and laws permitting abortion are seen for what they are.

"Our pro-life convictions have to be consistently expressed in action, in support of women who are trapped in difficult and painful circumstances and in support of the children they are carrying.

"May God bless Ireland and its generous hearted people. May that love, in every family, be a protection for the unborn, whatever the law may now permit."

Sixty-six per cent of voters in the Republic of Ireland on Friday backed the repeal of an amendment to the constitution, which outlaws abortion in all but exceptional circumstances.
