Abortion is NEVER 'self-defence'

Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte of Montreal has shown a spectacular lack of understanding about abortion and contraception in a recent interview. He is quoted as saying:

"Personally, I am against murder but can understand that sometimes, when someone is being attacked, they need to kill someone in self-defense. I am against abortion, but I can understand that in certain cases, there is almost no other choice than to practice it."

He was speaking in the context of the recent case involving a nine-year-old Brazilian rape victim whose twins were killed by abortion. The argument that an innocent unborn baby can be classified as a violent aggressor simply by existing is entirely irrational. As I have already posted, abortion is never necessary to save a mother's life, as honest obstetricians around the world are willing to testify. Men like Cardinal Turcotte should know better than to perpetuate the lies of the abortion lobby.
