Fr D'Arcy must make a choice over abortion

Published 19/09/2016

Father Brian D'Arcy says that he counsels women considering abortions with the words "whatever you choose is the right choice" (News, September 15). He claims also to be pro-life, but this assertion is hardly consistent with the pro-choice counsel he gives.

There is a clear choice for Father D'Arcy: he must choose whether or not he is really against abortion; and if his choice is in favour of abortion, then he must consider his position within a Church, which is still committed unambiguously to the protection of the right to life of unborn children.
