Bishop Frederick Henry of the Catholic Diocese of Calgary has joined Archbishop J. Michael Miller in endorsing the WeNeedaLAW.ca campaign.
Campaign director, Mike Schouten received this statement from Bishop Henry:
“Since the 1988 ruling in Regina v. Morgentaler, Canada has had no abortion law. Canadian history has shown that we make the law (or seek justice) in our image and likeness where there is no external standard, and worse still, the rationale for having an abortion multiplies. This is intolerable. It is time for everyone to support the campaign and goals of WeNeedaLAW.ca.”
“We are grateful to Bishop Henry for his support. He clearly understands that if we are to effect change in Canada we need to do so incrementally,” said Schouten.
