In a hard hitting sermon last Monday Archbishop Carlos Osoro of Valencia denounced abortion as "the worst dictatorship that can exist" and "the greatest injustice in history because it ends the lives of the weakest." See LifeSite News.
The Archbishops comments were made as the Spanish Chamber of Deputies approved legislation to make abortion more freely available in Spain and which would allow women to have abortion on demand up to fourteen weeks and includes pro-abortion education throughout Spain. The legislation must now go to Spain's upper house.
According to the Spanish newspaper ABC, Osoro also denounced western nations where
"we fill our mouths with talk of human rights and where the most is being done to prevent the construction of peace and reconciliation."the Archbishop said.
"Reconciliation will never arrive while human life is not respected from its beginning until its natural end," added Osoro, who noted that the situation is similar to "what was experienced in Europe in previous times," comparing the current abortionist regimes to the totalitarianism of the 20th century.
"In questioning life, liberty in itself is brought into question, and the most profound injustice that can exist is established, which is to take away the life of the most defenceless,"
