Fr D'Arcy must make a choice over abortion

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.
