Abortion bill a matter of life and death, Australian bishop says
Queensland, Australia, Aug 2, 2018 / 11:23 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane, Australia encouraged members of parliament to look beyond the “worn-out ideologies and tricky language” behind a bill to legalization abortion in Queensland.

“To speak of a woman’s rights is important, but what of the rights of unborn children, or do they have no real human status?”
The archbishop responded to a Queensland proposal that would legalize abortion
