The head of the Catholic Church in Scotland has just given a press conference saying that catholic politicians who support abortion will be refused communion. I'm really getting sick of this man sticking his nose into politics and this is moral and emotional blackmail. I had a catholic education etc but any good work the catholic church does is overshadowed by this sensationalist posturing. They seem to be stuck somewhere in the 19th century. Down in Engerland that Rowan Williams seems a bit of a beardyhippy and I'm sure many people are just counting the days till he goes
This is so unthought through. The world is full of unloved and unwanted children in orphanages. Banning abortion would increase this by an untold amount. It's a sad fact of life which some people choose to bury their head in the sand about and condemn others for excercising their right to choose. The politicians being threatened here have no right of redress, what can they say in return ?
