INTERNATIONAL: Catholic Church rules out abortion for Zika cases

abortionANTIGUA OBSERVER – The Catholic Church has made it clear that abortion in the case of Zika would not be an option for the institution.

Bishop of St John’s Basseterre Kenneth Richards said the church does not believe in attacking innocent lives regardless of the circumstances.

“What would be advisable is that persons take the necessary precautions, because sometimes we can be less than prudent and vigilant with respect to how we conduct ourselves, especially in the face of danger,” Bishop Richards told OBSERVER media.

He suggested that women and men should instead follow the message of prevention and precaution as has been preached by the health authorities.

The view of the Catholic bishop was supported by the Executive Director of the Antigua Planned Parenthood Association Lyndale Weaver Greenaway.
