Bishop Manning's CathBlog: The political fight for life
|Bishop Emeritus of Parramatta, Most Rev Kevin Manning DD.|
In his latest CathBlog, Most Rev Kevin Manning DD, Bishop Emeritus of Parramatta, says that defending the sacredness of life means lobbying for increased facilities for palliative care, especially in regional and rural Australia.
"Policy makers and commentators continue to hammer away at the belief of Christians, and many of other religions, that all human life is a precious gift from God, and that all human life has inviolable dignity from the moment of conception till the moment of natural death," Bishop Manning writes.
"The Greens, and allied policy formators, are threatening human life today in many ways."
