Hopeful Prayers to try prevent Abortion Bill- Australia- Fides

(Catholic Watchdog South Africa; Agenzia Fides)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Archbishop Denis Hart of Melbourne has sent a request for prayer to Catholic citizens in Melbourne- to combat an abortion bill- similar to those present in South Africa- which would force hospitals to partake in abortion- and be excommunicated from our church, or break the law. A third of births in the region are delivered by Catholic health care- and this follows announcements by the Archbishop that if the bill passes through successfully- the Catholic hospitals will close their maternity wards to not partake in this grievous, scandalous sin- proposed in legislation.

The Archbishop has set up a "Day of Intercession for Life," (Sunday, October 5, 2008), including a vigil at the Saint Patrick's Cathedral- for those planning to pray against this.
