Cardinal Ruben Salazar: Abortion is a cruel attack against Human Dignity

The president of the Colombia Catholic Bishops Conference, Cardinal Ruben Salazar of Bogota, has told reporters that abortion is morally unacceptable even if governments and some non-governmental organisations defend it. He noted that abortion is a cruel attack against human dignity and fundamental rights, and therefore should be opposed by every human being. Many countries legalize abortion in cases of rape, genetic deformation and danger to the health of the mother. Cardinal Salazar stressed that a just and peaceful society should affirm, promote and protect the first of all fundamental rights of the person: that is, the right to life. Colombia legalized abortion in 2006.
