Today, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, president of the British Bishops, declared he will “support” and “pray” for the archbishops of Armagh and Dublin, Eamon Martin and Diarmuid Martin, after the Irish referendum that changed the Constitution. “Our commitment to mothers and their unborn children is the same as before”, the London cardinal writes. “We must do all we can to make sure that deliberately taking an unborn human being’s life away is not an option that anyone can use”, the cardinal presses on, then he says that denying a human being’s life is “a mistake that damages our fragile humanity”. That’s why card. Nichols calls everyone to “work and pray” so that the day will come when this truth “will be widely accepted and the laws that authorise abortion will be viewed for what they are”. The cardinal also calls everyone to “consistently express with facts” our “pro-life beliefs”, by supporting women “in difficult and painful circumstances” and the children they carry. Lastly, a wish: “may love protect the unborn ones, in every family, whatever the law allows”.
