Proposed legislation on abortion.

265

Irish Catholic bishops have today said that the proposed legislation on abortion is something that every citizen should be concerned about.

The statement was made following the Irish Bishops Conference today.

They said that every Irish citizen should be concerned as it legislates on when terminations can be carried out, adding that it is a defining moment for the country.

They also said that it is the first time that legislation is to be introduced that will permit the deliberate and intentional killing of an unborn child.
