One abortion too many

Some may feel the Catholic Church is a generation behind everyone else in attitudes to abortion. I believe the church is a generation in front of popular opinion on protecting human life from womb to tomb. The crucial question is: When does life begin? Catholics believe that the life process begins at the time of conception. Medical science seems to be pushing certainty about this matter back earlier and earlier than in times past. The Catholic Church stands unashamedly alongside this "silent" humanity. We want to become a voice for the voiceless. Even one abortion is too many - Archbishop Denis Hart
